About This Item

London: Jarrolds Publishers, 1925. First edition. First edition. Thick quarto. Original white cloth with bold gilt-blocked and stamped Art Deco design by T. Sturge Moorevon front cover and spine. Limited to 500 Signed (H.P.R. Finberg, publisher), No. 123. Preface by William Butler Yeats. Cover design, exquisite illustrations and decorations throughout by T. Sturge Moore. One of the more impressive gilt stamped bindings of the period, and seldom seen in fine condition. This without a doubt the finest copy we have seen of this book, with no fading or browning to spine (almost always seen). J. Taylor, in "The Art Nouveau Book in Britain," (1980) has the following quote by T. Sturge Moore concerning the cover design: "The minor decorations are symbols: for the 'uncreated light', an unfigured circle; for the great renunciation, a crucifix; for heaven-reflecting life, a rose." Very fine.
