Dulac, Edmund
BALLAD OF HUGH BIGOD, EARL OF NORFOLK
[London]: n.p., 1906. Fine.. Sumptuous full crimson goatskin by Sangorski and Sutcliffe, ornamented with gilt rules and Art Nouveau-devices on boards, raised bands, gilt-lettered and -ruled spine. All edges gilt, gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers. Hand-lettered title page and text throughout. Each leaf individually matted and hinged into book, featuring a watercolor and text in verse below it. 6 full-page original watercolors, including one signed and dated by Dulac. Housed in a custom velvet lined, crimson cloth clamshell box. Bookplate of Herchel V. Jones, the publisher of the Minnepolis Journal and a noted book collector, laid in. Finished original manuscript by Dulac of King Henry, his knights on horseback, medieval lords and a nervous Earl Hugh Bigod and his castle of Bungaye. The colors and style are most reminiscent of Dulac's ABC: Lyrics Pathetic and Humorous, published two years after this manuscript. This tale would appear as a full-page color illustration in the Christmas 1906 issue of the GRAPHIC. A stunning piece of original art by Dulac. Finished Dulac manuscripts with watercolors are rare, and this one is fabulous in content as well as in presentation.
