Robinson, Alan james (illus.)

(Easthampton, MA): Cheloniidae Press, 1985. Quarto. (42)pp. From an edition of 75, this is an artist's copy, signed by Alan James Robinson and the dedicatee, Dick Callaway, in a special binding, with an extra suite of proof illustrations and unique additions to the book, such as hand-coloring to all the engravings and original watercolors on the dedication page, half-title, and leaf after the colophon. Illustrated with five erotic etchings, colored "... la poupée," and seven wood engravings. The original drawing is based on the frontispiece etching. Peter Geraty's special, one-off binding is full navy morocco with gilt rules and a gilt swan image, replicated as the watercolor on the half-title, the plate for which is inset in the box. The proofs, along with a description signed by Robinson and Geraty, are laid in to a chemise, and housed together with the book in a drop-back box. Very fine. Item #30080
