THE GRECIAN ENCHANTED.
by Hartnoll, Phyllis
Limited to 360 numbered copies (Cock-a-hoop 189). A simple love tale illustrated with 8 aquatints by John Buckland-Wright. Printed on Arnold's mould-made paper in Caslon's Old Face type. Cock-A-Hoop- "A simple tale, as evanescent as the scent of wild thyme, into which Phyllis Hartnoll wove the mingled ecstasy and heart-break of young lover..." Exceptionally suited to illustration, the tale inspired John Buckland-Wright to create a series of large and brilliant copper engravings combined experimentally with aquatint." However, Cave and Manson state in A History of The Golden Cockerel Press 1920-1960 (see pages 202-203) that Sanford "decided to cut expenditure by substituting collotype reproductions instead of intaglio prints in ordinary copies...though 'special' copies still had a set of the prints printed intaglio." Very fine copy.
