The History of the Valorous and Wittie Knight-Errant Don Quixote of the Mancha. Parts I and II
Ashendene Press, Chelsea 1928 - Two folio volumes. xiii, 268; x, 256pp. One of 225 copies. Printed in red and black in double columns with floriated initials by Louise Powell. This is the first appearance of the "Ptolemy" type, and the book is one of the most impressive productions of the Ashendene Press. Colin Franklin writes "Of [Hornby's] grand works, Don Quixote in two folio volumes may be preferred; easier to read and turn pages of prose, and very fine in his later type with Louise Powell's initials." A fine set in a variant binding of full green morocco with gilt-titling and seven raised bands on the spine, and full gilt rules and titling on covers. Housed in morocco-trimmed cloth slipcases. Small booklabel of George Abrams in both volumes. (Franklin, p. 57). [Attributes: Hard Cover]
