The Kingis Quair. by VALE PRESS. JAMES I.
A superb copy printed in a specially designed typeface by Ricketts

~ The Kingis Quair.

London Vale Press 1903

Edited by Robert Steele. Printed in red and black in a special font designed by Charles Ricketts, ‘The King’s Fount’. One of 260 copies. 8vo., a really fresh and crisp copy in the original quarter linen with blue paper covered boards, printed paper label on upper cover. Very slight speckling to endpapers and edges as usual, otherwise a very good untrimmed copy.

A more elaborate illustrated edition had been planned but it was abandoned in favour or the rather charming simplicity of this version in Rickett’s extraordinary typeface. The three planned illustrations appeared later in ‘The Dial’ (no.4 & 5).
