The Door in the Wall.

Coburn, Alvin Langdon (illus.)

London: Folio Society, 2016. Folio, plus accompanying octavo volume. 153; 32pp. The folio is a full-sized facsimile, true in printing and binding, of one of the extremely rare signed first printings of the edition produced by Grant Richards in 1915 in London. The facsimile includes reproductions of Coburn's forty photographs, tipped in as they were in the original. The secondary booklet features essays by George Hendrick and David Lodge, who respectively grapple with the collaboration of Wells and Coburn and the relationship between image and text. Included also are letters Coburn wrote to Wells discussing the production of Richards' edition. A noble facsimile, bound like the original in quarter cloth with gilt to upper cover and deckled edges. Booklet in brown paper wrappers. Folio has slight splay to upper board, else altogether fine. Housed in dropback box, which shows some rubbing. Item #28884
