Le Morte Darthur Portfolio

BEARDSLEY, Aubrey

BEARDSLEY, Aubrey Le Morte Darthur Portfolio

Dent, 1927.

First edition. Number 122 of a limited edition of 300 copies on hand made paper. Quarto. Original calf spine and vellum boards with bold Beardsley design embossed in gilt. Top edge gilt and others untrimmed. This volume contains 11 designs omitted from the first edition of Le Morte DArthur, as well as the designs made for the covers of the parts and an enlarged print of the Merlin drawing. A near fine copy, largely clean and bright, with the boards slightly bowed and only very light traces of wear to the spine ends.

It has been throguht that possessors of the original Large Paper edition, of which three hundred copies were printed, might prefer, instead of the third edition, to have this slender volume, which contains all the newly included designs and is uniform in size with the original Large Paper issue. This extra volume will, so to speak, complete their set of the illustrated Morte Darthur (Publisher's preface).
