The Book of Jonah. Together with Thirteen Wood Engravings by David Jones for The Book of Jonah.

Jones, David (illus.)

London: Clover Hill Editions, 1979. Quarto. 19pp. One of 100 copies of the edition printed on Barcham Green's RWS hand-made paper, with an extra set of the engravings on japon, by Will Carter at the Rampant Lions Press. 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 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. The book is very fine in the publisher's binding of cloth-backed patterned paper-covered boards. Engravings fine in paper pocket formed out of the rear pastedown. Housed in green slipcase. Item #27903

(Cleverdon 9).
