BAWDEN, Edward. ~ Life in an English Village.
Sixteen Lithographs by Edward Bawden with an Introductory Essay by Noel Carrington. Bawden’s original colour lithographs were printed at the Curwen Press. 8vo., original pictorial boards designed by Bawden. A very good copy with only slight bumping to the head and tail of spine and corners, remains of a small sticker on the front pastedown.
The lithographs are of Great Bardfield in Essex where Bawden lived in an artists’ community along with Ravilious, Michael Rothenstein, Walter Hoyle, George Chapman, Sheila Robinson amongst others. Here Bawden shows a typical village life with lithographs of subjects including the vicar in his study, the village pub, the village shop, men mending agricultural machinery, the butcher, the baker, the tailor, the cobbler etc.
