By Charles Dickens, designed by Francis Meynell, edited by Arthur Waugh and Hugh Walpole
Uncommonly complete and exquisitely preserved set of the landmark Nonesuch Press publication, one of the most fully realized and beautifully executed Dickens collections ever produced — this with the original packing material and documents and in the rare original dust jackets.
Scarce signed first trade edition of this important artist's book from the founder of Art Brut, inscribed in year of publication to collaborator, Compagnie de l'Art Brut secretary, and co-editor of the Cahiers de l'Art Brut, Jacqueline Voulet.
Brilliant artist's book from John Gerard's Paperstudio in which artist Wolfgang Heuwinkel utilizes chromatography to color handmade paper, the sheets then cleverly cut to form the letters that spell "Anfang" (Beginning) and 'Ende' (End) — all appropriately bound dos-à-dos.
