JONES, David (1895-1974) ~ Jonah is Seized by the Sailors.
Original proof wood engraving, here printed on cheap proofing paper and delicately hand-coloured, probably by David Jones himself. Image size 127 x 88 mms, sheet size 200 x 135 mms. Fairly fragile.
From the Golden Cockerel Press Book of Jonah, p.6, possibly coloured whilst the Press was deciding to colour the whole edition of the book which was published in 170 copies (in the end uncoloured).
The proof came from the estate of David Jones which is why it is probable that the colouring was done by the artist himself.
A very desirable and interesting piece of David Jones and Golden Cockerel Press ephemera.
