NASH, Paul


Category: Illustrated

London, William Heinemann. 1922.

Description:

Limited edition; 4to; original cloth backed boards with the first print repeated on the front cover. Signed by Nash, this being number 9 of 50 copies on japon paper with designs printed directly from the woodblocks. Places is unique among Nash's illustrated books for, apart from the printing it is entirely his own work. He wrote the 'prose poems' designed the cover, title page and illustrations and the text is printed in a facsimile of his hand writing. Claire Colvin writes that 'Places is a very private book; all the locations are ones which Nash had a very strong personal involvement'. Very good, covers a little soiled, with some wear to the corners and spine ends. Internally fine.
