Neville Barnett (P.)
Japanese Colour-Prints.
Beacon Press, 1936. 96/185 STANDARD DE LUXE COPIES from an overall edition of 200, signed by the author, 94 tipped-in colour woodblock prints, occasional faint offsetting, patterned endpapers, pp. 109, [vii], large 4to, quarter vellum, linen boards, upper board lettered in gilt with red motif, spine ruled and lettered in gilt, lower board edges faintly dampstained, small spot on gilt rule of upper board, very good. An impressive edition featuring, among others, Hokusai, Hiroshige and Shôson. P. Neville Barnett was instrumental in the genesis of the Beacon Press, since it was his approach to Harrie Mortlock of Boylan & Co, which led to its establishment. This renowned edition is testament to the high quality production methods used by the press - the intensity of the woodblock colours is particularly striking.
