The Book of Jonah. Together with thirteen wood engravings by David Jones for the book.

Jones, David (illus.)

London: Clover Hill Editions, 1979. Quarto. 19pp. One of 100 copies, printed on Barcham Green’s RWS handmade paper by Will Carter at the Rampant Lions Press, with an extra set of the engravings on japon. Illustrated with thirteen wood engravings by David Jones, several of which frame the text. Jones was encouraged by Eric Gill to learn the craft of wood engraving, and although one can see the influence of Gill’s work in these illustrations, they also reveal a sense of darkness and tumult that is distinctly Jones’s own. The first edition of this book was published by the Golden Cockerel Press in 1926; the new edition was printed using Jones’s original blocks. The engravings in this portfolio are untrimmed and therefore slightly larger than the prints included in those suites. Light fading to spine and head of slipcase, else fine in publisher’s binding of cloth-backed patterned paper-covered boards. Engravings fine in paper pocket formed out of the rear paste-down. Housed in green cloth slipcase. Item #27903

(Cleverdon 9).
