        The wood engravings of Eric Ravilious (very scarce first edition, first printing)

      Lion and Unicorn Press/ Curwen Press 1972 - NUMBER 33 OF A LIMITED EDITION OF 500 COPIES. This rare and beautifully produced, folio format (420 x 295mm) book was designed by John Carrod for Lion and Unicorn Press, the Royal College of Art’s press. It is printed on heavy Grosvenor Chater’s Basingwerk Parchment paper. Tan woven cloth with black pictorial illustration front and back. Original black slipcase. Folio. Pattern endpapers. 113pp. + Chronological Index. 421 blocks, which represent all Ravilious' engraved work for which copies could be found. "Compiling a volume of the complete wood engravings of a prolific (and unsystematic) artist has presented its problems. Unfortunately most of Eric Ravilious's original wood blocks were accidentally destroyed but six are still in existence. Owing to their fragility they could not be used in the production of this book. Similarly some of Eric Ravilious's work has not survived the ravages of time and the bombing during the Second World War. Where we know of engravings but have not been able to find copies we have listed them in their chronological order in the captions, marked 'no copy found'. All engravings used as decorations in this book appear in their original size and in chronological order. They are: front cover - Christmas card 1934; endpapers - pattern (actual size); half titles - naval periodical 1942; title page - 54 Conceits l933; and back cover Legion Book 1929." Designed by John Carrod at the Royal College of Art. Printed on Grosvenor Chater's Basingwerk Parchment and printed at The Curwen Press. Binding by Henry Brooks Ltd. NUMBER 33 OF A LIMITED EDITION OF 500 COPIES. Binding clean and tight. 3 very small spots on the fore-edge of the book else fine.

        New York, New York

      Budapest: Maygar Helikon, 1972. A few areas of peeling to the nylon binding as is always the case; else near fine in a near fine jacket, lightly worn at the spine head, with no restoration. A pleasing copy of a book hard to find in nice condition.. First Edition. Small quarto. The desired edition: number 1100 of 1200 press-numbered copies bound in flexible nylon boards. (There was also an edition of 5200 copies bound in paper covered boards.) A towering accomplishment by a virtually unknown Hungarian photographer, resuscitated from obscurity by Martin Parr and Gerry Badger. Traveling to New York for a two month stint in the pivotal year of 1968, Lorinczy is able to capture the flavor of the city and the fervor of era. At the same time, and with total serendipitous coincidence, his work blends seamlessly into the photographic trends of the time, from the Provoke movement to Warhol. While Lorinczy's solarized image of Radio City overlaid with blue glassine has become an instant classic, his rhapsodic city snowscapes are some of the most evocative New York pictures I have seen. (Parr / Badger, v1, 262-263).

The American Folk Blues Festival was the brainchild of German concert promoters, Horst Lippmann and Fritz Rau, who had been successfully presenting jazz concerts in Germany since the mid - 1950&#146;s. First held in 1962, this was the tenth anniversary of the festival, for which this poster was designed, and featured several of the musicians, including T-Bone Walker and Memphis Slim who had been part of the original festival. Working with the well-connected Chicago bluesman, composer and bassist Willie Dixon, L&R had for the past decade presented a who&#146;s who of American urban and country blues artists for the first time to European audiences with successful concerts in England, France and Germany. Early exposure to these great American blues musicians inspired and influenced a generation of British musicians, including future rock stars Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood, all of whom played an important role in the blue-based British Invasion of the 1960&#146;s. This was to be the last AFBF for eight years although the festival did resume in 1980 and continued for another five years. The posters created exclusively for the German AFBF festivals were designed by the eminent graphic designer Gunther Kieser and are representative of some of his finest music poster designs. A significant blues poster for the tenth presentation of the influential American Folk Blues Festival, in collector&#146;s condition, scarce without factory folds and SIGNED by the designer. 1751.
