Canals, Barges and People.
Art and Technics 1950 - FIRST EDITION, 24 full-page wood-engravings colour-printed in two or more colours, and 22 other wood-engravings, placed as vignettes or head and tail-pieces, a few spots to half-title, pp. 96, 8vo, original quarter maroon cloth, backstrip lettered in gilt, patterned pink and white boards, top edge red with a few pinprick foxspots to other edges, endpaper maps with some very faint browning and foxing, bookplate of John Lewis to verso of flyleaf, dustjacket bright with a few spots and handling marks, chipping to corners and ends of backstrip panel, very good. One of only 1,000 copies printed, this inscribed by the author on the half-title: 'To ABO'C from JO'C and in memory of VFO'C, 1950'; the recipient was his mother, Annie Besant O'Connor, and the remembered his father (posthumous dedicatee of O'Connor's 'A Pattern of People') Vernon Feargus O'Connor. An excellent and poignant association. This was latterly the copy of typographer and author John Lewis, with a typed copy of his contemporary review loosely inserted.
