St. Joan. A Chronicle Play in Six Scenes and an Epilogue . . . with Sketches by C.[harles] Ricketts
London: Constable, 1924. Folio, (6), 182, (2)pp. With 16 color illustrations by Ricketts tipped-in. Designer binding of white and brown full polished calf, covers tooled in gilt and blind, inlaid lettering on upper cover ÒSaint JoanÓ in red morocco. Minor restoration to backstrip, a very good copy in slipcase. Limited to 750 copies, this copy in a unique and quite beautiful binding designed by Gisele Aron and executed by Zaehnsdorf; it was purchased by the previous owner in London in 1958, and thus was probably created c. 1950-55. Surely the most beautiful printing of any of ShawÕs plays, this excellent edition on hand-made paper deserves a fine binding of this quality. Ricketts is best remembered for his work with the Vale and Eragny presses, and in the theatre as a set and costume designer.
