An Arc of Red Crystals; | Four Erotic Stories

Carlisle, Ontario: G. Brender à Brandis | Bookwright, 1990. Octavo, 25.1 x 18.5 cm. Cased in full cream Barcham Green De Wint paper. Lettering, a vignette, and an arrangement of printer’s ornaments, all printed in black, embellish the upper cover. Chiri endpapers. All edges opened but untrimmed. Housed in a matching paper covered slipcase. The slipcase was made by Bookcrafters of Toronto. Unpaginated [ll. 18]. Both covers are toned and discoloured along the edges and particularly along the joints: bands of noticeably lighter colour extend from the spine onto both covers and run the height of the book; the area affected measures roughly 3.5 cm across on both covers. The slipcase is mildly soiled and the front panel is noticeably spotted. There are a few very minor spots along the fore-edges, but otherwise an internally clean and bright copy. The text was set in Libra type and printed on rag paper handmade at the Papeterie Saint-Gilles. 7 wood engravings by Gerard Brender à Brandis accompany the text; 5 are full-page. Each was printed from the block in black. From an edition of 48 copies, this being number 7. Signed in pencil by Graham Jackson and in ink by Brender à Brandis on the limitation page. Item #348
