King Lear.

Kokoschka, Oskar (illus.)

London: Ganymed Original Editions Limited, 1963. Folio. 109pp. One of 275 copies. Signed by the illustrator on the limitation page. Illustrated by Oskar Kokoschka with sixteen black & white lithographs. Kokoschka's expressionist interpretations of Shakespeare's text successfully translate the psychology of the text into image. The shadowy lithographs, set against the bright handmade Crisbrook paper, underscore the darker discourse on character, age, and power that runs throughout the play. Text set in Fell type and printed at the University Press, Oxford. Bound in full vellum with marbled endpapers and gilt lettering to spine. Upper board a bit splayed, free endpapers somewhat worn at edges because they overhang the main text block, else a handsome near fine copy, housed in gray cloth slipcase. Item #28319
