ASHENDENE PRESS The Wisdom of Jesus, the Son of Sirach, Commonlly Called Ecclesiasticus

Ashendene Press, 1932.

One of 328 copies on paper. 4to. Printed in red and black with hand-painted initials in blue and green by Graily Hewitt, Ida D. Henstock and Helen E. Hinkley. In the original orange-vellum, bound by Douglas Cockerell at the W. H. Smith Bindery. Four silk ties. Housed in custom-slipcase. An uncommonly fine copy, the orange-stained vellum still vibrant, especially to the spine which is prone to fade. Internally fine, the pages clean and crisp.

'In my humble judgement it is one of the most satisfactory of the books of the Press' (Hornby 38).

PROVENANCE: Bookplate of Mary Priscilla Smith to front pastedown, collector of private press books in fine condition.
