Brighton Aquatints.
London: Duckworth, printed at the Curwen Press,, 1939. Twelve original aquatints of modern Brighton with short descriptions by the artist and an introduction by Lord Alfred Douglas. Oblong folio. Original red cloth-backed blue marbled paper boards, titles in gilt to printed paper label to front cover. With 12 monochrome aquatints, with tissue-guards, the accompanying text on printed blue paper. Slight wear to extremities, faint browning to covers, occasional creasing to tissue-guards, a very good, bright copy. Sole edition, one of 200 copies. Piper visited Brighton in 1938, shortly after completing a course of lessons at the Royal College of Art in producing aquatints. This collection, key in Piper's artistic development, was produced with the architect James Richards "in imitation of a Romantic guidebook", shortly after (ODNB). With a contemporary gift inscription to the front free endpaper, "Ambrose, with love from Anne, Feb. 23 1940". The recipient is believed to be food writer Ambrose Heath (1891–1969). An uncommon work, traced at seven institutions in the UK.
