Hammersmith: Doves Press, 1902. ONE OF 25 COPIES ON VELLUM (there were also 325 on paper). 234 x 165 mm.

Ascherson (see below), dated 1902 in pencil. Tidcombe DP-4. Boards a little wavy, minor (naturally occurring) variations in the grain of the covers, but a fine copy, the vellum leaves smooth, creamy, and bright, and the binding with few signs of wear. This is the luminous vellum printing of the fourth publication of the Doves Press, gathering a number of poems by Tennyson written at various times in his long life, all of them reflecting his abiding interest in Homer and Greek myth. In contrast to Kelmscott Press founder William Morris' proclivity toward the Baroque, Thomas J. Cobden-Sanderson, the Doves Press founder (along with Emery Walker), demonstrated that printing with plain type (designed by Walker) that is well set… Read more

Description:
1937. Softcover. Fine. A collection of 104 original artworks (85 hand-painted color illustrations and 19 woodcut prints) on fine paper sheets ranging in size from about 4 ½" x 7" to 8" x 12". Most measure about 6" x 8". All are in fine condition, neatly laid-in plastic sleeves in four later vintage albums. The designs are notable for their striking portraits of figures from literature with distinctive quadrilateral eyes, and for their layering of dark colors, often with gold and silver, which gives them a three-dimensional and jewel-like luminosity similar to Persian miniature paintings. Most are signed with the monogram "AM" in paint or pencil, and we know from provenance that the artist went by the name Anne Marie. We have reason to believe her full name may have been Anne Marie Bonnet and that at least some of her work was commissioned by the publisher Ben Abramson, although we have been unable to discover any further information.
