ASHENDENE PRESS. ~ Un Mazzetto Scelto di Certi Fioretti del Glorioso Poverello di Cristo San Francesco di Assisi Insieme col Cantico al Sole del Medesimo.
One of 125 copies on Batchelor 'hammer and anvil' paper, there were 20 copies printed on vellum. With woodcuts engraved by W.H. Hooper from drawings by Charles Gere's which are a pastiche of Florentine woodcuts. Printed in Subiaco type in two columns in red and black. Red initials printed from blocks designed by Graily Hewitt. Large 4to., bound in handsome full red morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. A few tiny spots of wear on the binding, otherwise an extremely good copy. Chelsea, Ashendene Press. 1904.
Much larger than any of the previous books and a really well-balanced and beautifully designed book with a satisfying use of red ink and the two-column style.
