THE DOOR IN THE WALL. Illustrated with Photogravures from Photographs by Alvin Langdon Coburn.
Mitchell Kennerley, New York & London 1911 - Folio, (iv), 153, (i) pp., with 10 tipped-in hand-pulled photogravure plates printed under the supervision of Coburn. Newly bound in linen-backed paper over boards, with the original titling in facsimile on the upper board, and printed paper spine label. The gravure plates are rich in tone and have left transfers on the opposing page as is usually found. The original front free endpaper and half-title page show a mottle pattern from an early inlaid printed item, and there is an occasional spot of foxing to a blank margin. Otherwise, this a very good copy on French hand made paper with types and decorations designed by Frederic W. Goudy and set by Bertha S. Goudy. There were 600 copies of this book printed but only approx. 300 have the full complement of hand-pulled photogravures, the others are either lacking plates or were completed with plates printed by aquatone, a halftone process. This copy is one of the three hundred that contains all plates in hand-pulled photogravure. THE TRUTHFUL LENS #184. [Attributes: First Edition]
