About This Item

London/New York: Hacon & Ricketts, The Vale Press/John Lane, 1903. One of 300 copies. Finely Bound, Half Leather/Half Hand-marbled paper over Very Thick Boards, over sharp Buckram Tips. Unsigned, but unquestionably done by a Master Bookbinder. Elaborate, Hand tooled Gilt to front board: Hexagram Pantacle, Sephirotic Tree of Life, and a Talismanic "Abracadabra" of the Title (see image). Light extremity wear, rubbing to front joint, but no splits. Sewn binding extremely tight, hinges Fine. Thick Top edge Gilt (t.e.g.), others uncut. Bound with Silk Ribbon Bookmark. Internally Fine. Just a touch of age, otherwise clean, bright, and Unmarked. Laid in four page prospectus catalog "List of Books to be Published...", as called for. As above, internally Fine, with some binding wear. Conservatively Very Good+ indeed, and a quite exceptional example of Bookbinding Art.. First Edition Thus, First Printing. Half-Leather/T.E.G.. Very Good+. Illus. by Charles Ricketts, Wood Engravings. Large 4to - over 11¾" tall. Oversized Safely, Securely Packed.
