Loyalties

Loyalties

John Drinkwater: Illustrated by Paul Nash

Limited edition; 8vo; original cover in black and yellow on blue paper. Edition of 200 on hand made paper. Ten line block illustrations in black and white from drawings by Paul Nash. The fifth book published by the Beaumont Press. Nash became friends with John Drinkwatrer in the summer of 1917 and stayed with him in July 1918 when the idea of illustrating Loyalties was suggested. Fine, very slight wear to the extremities and label to spine a little darkened. Attractive book plate of the American art collectors Marjorie and Duncan Phillips to front paste down.


Images of War.

Images of War.

ALDINGTON, Richard: Illustrated by Paul Nash

Limited edition; 8vo; original cover in black on red paper designed by Paul Nash. Edition of 200 on hand made paper. Eleven block illustrations in black and white from drawings by Nash. The seventh book published by the Beaumont Press. Clare Colvin in 'Paul Nashs Book Designs' states that 'the designs for Images of War are stronger and more intense than those for Loyalties ( the first book illustrated by Nash). This is partly because the poems are more powerful, but also because Nash explores the use of the abstract. The designs are similar to the work of Nash's contemporaies, the Vorticists. They contain the same vital energy.' Fine, very slight wear to the extremities and label to spine a little darkened.
