Shelley House, Chelsea Ashendene Press December 1925

12 page list printed in red and black in Subiaco type. 217 x 155 mm, original blue printed wrappers, sewn with green silk thread as issued. Slight darkening to edges and a tiny crease to bottom of spine, otherwise very good and bright.

Printed in December 1925 on the 31st anniversary of the founding of the Press. It states in the colophon "since December 1894 the Press has been almost continually at work, except during the five years of the War & after, 1914-1919".
The list clearly delineates books printed at Ashendene, those printed in Fell type from the Oxford University Press and those printed in Subiaco type.
It lists the books in preparation and mentions which paper was used for which and that any hand-drawn initials were by Hewitt who designed all the initials in colour except those in the Revelacion of Sanct Jhon and Utopia which were designed by Gill.
Finally he gives a 3 pp. list of the issue prices of all the books which were printed for sale.
