NotesFirst edition, first impression, number 147 of 350 copies, of this illustrated biography of Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, "designed to be a worthy memorial of his work", as pointed out in the loosely inserted publisher's promotional leaflet. Of the edition of 350 copies, ten were issued signed and bound in leather. The regular issue is uncommon in the dust jacket, here in very nice condition.
Folio. Original red buckram, spine and front cover lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. With the dust jacket.
With 67 plates, some in colour, and 15 illustrations within the text.
Spine ends a touch bumped, the binding otherwise bright and firm, faint foxing to edges, internally fresh and clean. A near-fine copy in the very good jacket, edges a little creased, minor edge-splits, not price-clipped and unfaded.
