Lewis, Wyndham
THE IDEAL GIANT THE CODE OF A HERDSMAN CANTELMAN'S SPRING-MATE
London: Privately Printed for the London Office of THE LITTLE REVIEW, 1917. Printed self-wrapper string-tied into cloth- backed pictorial board folder, with cover illustration and pictorial second title after designs by Lewis. The cream white boards are dustsoiled and have a few spots, the fragile fore-corners of the boards are chipped, with some loss, but internally a very nice copy of this fragile production. First edition of Lewis's first separate literary book, preceded by TIMON OF ATHENS, a portfolio of illustrations. This work collects three short pieces, and was printed in an edition of approximately two hundred copies (though Pound & Grover speculate that perhaps only fifty copies of the folder were made). MORROW & LAFOURCADE A2. POUND & GROVER A1.
Bookseller: William Reese Company - Literature ABAA-
