Gray, John
London: Elkin Mathews and John Lane, 1893. Ricketts, Charles. Tall octavo. XXXVIIIpp. From an edition of 275 copies, this is one of 250 copies on Spalding paper and bound in full cloth. Silverpoints is considered to be Ricketts' most successful trade book and a precursor to the Vale Press. The slender format, referred to as a "saddle book" is a design based on Aldine models, attributed to Persian sources that infiltrated Venice. John Gray, a "fastidious dandy...and member of the Ricketts circle" dedicated several poems to Oscar Wilde, who is said to have financed the publication. Full green cloth, stamped in gold on both covers. Some exterior rubbing, else a very good copy of a scarce publication. (Turn of the Century 15).
Bookseller: Bromer Booksellers [United States]
