Large 4to, 36 x 25 cm, ten full-page wood-engraved plates: six by Blair Huges-Stanton, and four by Gertrude Hermes. Printed by the Shakespeare Head Press under the direction of Bernard Newdigate. As Roderick Cave noted [see: THE PRIVATE PRESS, p.183], "As Colin Franklin has so well put it in a phrase in which he linked Morris, Cobden-Sanderson, Hornby, and Newdigate, the books appear as if the literary works were privately digested as well as printed, and presented in the form proper to them." Printed on Batchelor's Kelmscott hand-made paper in 18 pt. Cloister, in a Limited edition, copy 76 of 195, and bound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe with the eight page prospectus for the publication laid-in. The text for Vol.I from the 11th edition, published 1688, which represents Bunyan's final revision; Vol.II taken from the 2nd edition, published 1687. Two small tears at endpapers of Vol. I repaired with archival tape. Spine slightly dried, bookplate Vol.I. Slight nick spine of one vol.
