[ASHENDENE PRESS] The Mousetrap

Ashendene Press, 1895.

Sole edition. A single leaf, folded to make 4pp. Printed in red and black in Caslon pica caps. Ashendene Press woodcut device to final page. Slightly spotted, a very good copy indeed.

The program for a play performed at Ashendene on Guy Fawkes Day 1895, in which Catherine Hornby played the leading roll.
Printed for private distribution and unrecorded in Hornby's bibliography, the number of copies issued can be no more than a handful. The Ashendene Press had only began printing earlier that year, making this not only one of its rarest but one of its earliest publications.

PROVENANCE: Catherine Gwendoline Hornby (1871-1956), sister of Charles St. John Hornby, founder of the Ashendene Press.
