Heads Bodies & Legs.

Chopping, Richard (illus.)

(Harmondsworth, Middlesex): Penguin, (1946). Small octavo. Single page of text, followed by twelve leaves cut horizontally into three sections. First edition. Cut-figure book illustrated by Richard Chopping, who is perhaps best-known for designing the dust wrappers of Ian Fleming's James Bond novels. A brief narrative introduces the reason for these cut figures, which are the result of an apprentice magician's attempts to "unbewitch" a group of people and creatures that were affected by his absent master's magic. It all went awry, and this book offers one the chance to put things right, or make them even worse. This book was reprinted in 1951 and 1955; the 1946 first printing is a bit more elusive. This is a fine copy in color illustrated wrappers. Item #25736

Price: $550.00
