An Alphabet Book.

Edwards, Nancy Chandler (illus.)

(Boston): Bromer, Anne & David, 1980. 24pp. Although the colophon indicates that forty copies of this hand-colored manuscript were executed, Nancy Chandler Edwards completed only thirty copies. Of these, twenty-two were for sale. The artist used the theme of nature in decorating the letters of the alphabet. Illustrations of animals, birds, fish, insects, and flowers are all meticulously and perfectly painted in watercolors. The book was bound in full blue morocco at Green Dragon Bindery, and the artist crocheted a dainty three-color bookmark for the manuscript. Nancy Edwards was the calligrapher for our deluxe copies of "Poems of Life" by Emily Dickinson, and we consider her work positively "jewel-like." A very fine copy. (Bradbury, p. 38; see Bromer/Edison, p. 6; Bromer, pp. 67-68). (1 1/4 by 1; 32x25mm). Item #27956

Price: $1,250.00
