(Arion Press)

Don Quixote.

Wiley, William T. (illus.)

San Francisco: Arion Press, 2009-2010. Small quarto. Two volumes: 574; 627pp. One of 400 copies. Signed by the artist at colophons of both volumes. Illustrated throughout with etchings by Wiley, whose style captures the romance, and tinge of humor, that runs through the narrative. Wiley created the prints by scratching the emulsion from film with an etching needle. The negatives were then used to make polymer plates. Arion Press' two volumes mirror the way in which the very first edition was printed, with the second volume appearing ten years after the first. Both bound in brown and tan goatskin, with gold titling to spine and a gold "DQ" monogram, and housed in slipcases. Fine. Item #28570

Price: $2,750.00
