DE QUINCEY, Thomas (GAY, Zhenya)
CONFESSIONS OF AN ENGLISH OPIUM-EATER: Set of 10 SIGNED Loose Lithographs
Oxford: Limited Editions Club, 1930. Hardcover. Fine in a Very Good folder. Zhenya Gay. Small folio (10-1/4" x 13-1/2") consisting of 10 loose lithographs drawn on the stone by Zhenya Gay, each SIGNED by the artist. laid into the first signature of the book which in turn is laid into a cloth-backed marbled board folder with a large paper label on the front cover and with ribbon ties. Printed on hand-made Kelmscott paper by B. H. Newdigate at the Shakespeare Head Press. There was a total edition of 1520 copies illustrated with 12 lithographs and SIGNED by the artist and the printer on the limitation page. This is a special publication, not known previously by us and, having been acquired directly from the publisher's files, is likely unique. Each of the 10 lithographs is SIGNED by the artist, which was not the case with the printed book. The inner first signature folder consists of the title page, the limitation page on the verso which is SIGNED by the artist but not by the printer, and the half-title page with the verso blank. Also laid in is a sheet of paper on which is written in pencil "Supplementary Set" with measurements and other calculations on the verso.
Bookseller: Charles Agvent [United States]
