WITH EXTRA SUITE OF PLATES

MALLARMÉ, Stéphane l'après-Midi d'un Faune

JBW Editions / The Golden Cockerel Press, 1956.

Artist's special edition, one of only 25 lettered copies, this copy lettered E, with an extra suite of plates. 4to. Original publisher's vellum by Sangorski & Sutcliffe with gilt design to upper cover and gilt titles to the spine. All housed in publisher's green cloth slipcase. Four collotype plates by Buckland-Wright in the text and a further five loose steel engravings housed in a separate folder. A fine copy.

The sheets for this book were printed for Buckland-Wright as a private edition of 50 copies in 1936. However the book was not issued before the war and was then left unpublished at Buckland-Wright's death in 1954. Two years later the Golden Cockerel Press published a translation of the work reproducing Buckland-Wright's wash drawings, with this edition published as a special issue alongside it.
