History of the Peloponnesian Wars. Translated into English by Benjamin Jowett, M.A.

Hewitt, Graily (illus.)

Chelsea: Ashendene Press, 1930. Folio. 363pp. One of 260 copies printed in red and black on handmade paper. The opening line of each of the eight books is designed by Graily Hewitt and printed in red, and the other red initial letters are from an alphabet designed by Eric Gill for "Utopia." This was the last of the great Ashendene folios, and the present copy is very fine but for a touch of foxing along top edge that does not extend into the text. Original white pigskin binding by W.H. Smith is uncommonly clean and bright. Item #28491

(Hornby XXXVII).

Price: $4,500.00
