The Vicar of Wakefield. - GOLDSMITH, Oliver - 1903. [1231347]
Bedford Park, Chiswick, London: The Caradoc Press,, 1903. A tale supposed to be written by himself. Octavo. Original vellum, title to spine, silk bookmarker. Etched portrait frontispiece by Harry George Webb. Engraved initials and ornaments. Front hinge starting at bottom with some small tape repair to top, titles a little rubbed at the spine, the vellum a trifle soiled and cockled but unbowed, internally some cockling but otherwise clean, a very good copy. First Caradoc Press edition, number 305 of 360 copies on paper (an additional 14 were on vellum). This copy is signed in pencil by the artist Harry George Webb (1882-1914) under his etched portrait of Goldsmith that serves as the frontispiece. Webb, with his wife Hesba, founded the Caradoc Press in 1899. This Vicar of Wakefield is the ninth title produced by the press, and Colin Franklin considered it one of their finest.
