The Ingoldsby Legends: A Gallimaufry.

(Roget, John Lewis) (illus.)

British Columbia: Barbarian Press, 2015. One of forty-five copies of the deluxe edition, featuring a portfolio with strikes of the seven engravings appearing in the volume and an additional print. With the exception of the frontispiece, the engravings, fashioned after Roget's illustrations by the Brothers Dalziel of London, never appeared in print, instead having been acquired by Roberston Davies and housed with his collection at the Library at Massey College. They portray the phantasms and absurdities of the Legends, which themselves make playful the seriousness and romance abounding in contemporary Victorian literature.

Square octavo. 166pp. Bound in quarter calf and printed paper. Portfolio in quarter silk. Housed together in silk slipcase. Very fine. Item #30048

Price: $1,250.00
