Die Leiden des Jungen Werthers
Halcyon Press, Maastricht 1931 - Octavo. (256)pp. From an edition of 140, this is one of 125 copies on Pannekoek paper. All plates are signed by the illustrator, John Buckland Wright, and the publisher, A. A. M. Stols has signed on the colophon page. This is the third book bearing Buckland Wright's illustrations, and it marks his first use of copper engravings for book illustrations. The style employed here is slightly atypical of Buckland Wright, who depicts more bucolic elements without his customary eroticism. Reid notes that this book "is far scarcer than the printed limitation suggests" as "only a relatively few sets of the engravings were printed." Bound in full blue morocco by Louis Malcorps with cover decoration in gilt after a design by Buckland Wright. T.e.g. Housed in the publisher's marbled slipcase, which shows some light shelfwear. Prospectus for another early Buckland Wright title laid in. (Reid A3). [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
