ANTHONY POWELL, A BIBLIOGRAPHY.
With a foreword by Anthony Powell.
First edition. The fourth volume in the Winchester Bibliographies of Twentieth Century Writers series. Anthony Powell (born 1905) is one of the most distinguished novelists of the 20th century. He is best-known for his twelve-novel sequence, A DANCE TO THE MUSIC OF TIME (1951-1975), which won critical acclaim from the outset and, as it developed, brought considerable popular success. From 1948 to 1960 his five pre-war novels appeared in new editions, since when his entire fictional oeuvre has remained continuously in print. Powell's position, among the most distinguished members of what has been called "The Brideshead Generation," lends a particular interest to his discussions and reminiscences of contemporaries such as Evelyn Waugh, Orwell and Connolly. Also of interest are his writings on Hemingway, Scott Fitzgerald and E.E. Cummings; European masters such as Stendhal, Dostoevsky and Proust; and on English writers of an earlier generation such as Beardsley, Conrad and Kipling. This comprehensive, authorized bibliography aims to cover his entire printed output, beginning with drawings and reviews contributed to school and university magazines. Books written or edited, or with contributions by Powell are fully described and detailed information is given about their publishing history. Powell's many contributions to periodicals, magazines and newspapers are also recorded; as are published interviews, broadcasts, anthology appearances and translations of his books. When Anthony Powell was shown this bibliography he stated "George Lilley has gone about his job impeccably. I am both gratified and impressed." Illustrated.

MATRIX 23, WINTER 2003, A REVIEW FOR PRINTERS & BIBLIOPHILES
by Randle, John & Rosalind (editors)
Printed in an edition limited to 800 copies, this being one of 715 trade copies. Matrix is the longest surviving and probably the last typographical journal to be printed by letterpress. It is an eclectic mix of fine printing, type design, and small press lore, forming a record of events and personalities whose memory would otherwise have died with their recorders. It is no exaggeration to say that in the future it will be impossible to research fine printing without reference to Matrix. This issue contains twenty-five articles and additional book reviews, including: Anthony Dowd, "Fine Press and the Bookbinder"; Miriam MacGregor, "The Forgotten Pleasure of Hand-Printing"; Lucy Archer, "Working with Olive Cook"; Michael Caine, "My Concatenation of Types"; Dennis Gould, "Latterday Letterpress Printer"; and Simon Lawrence, "Aspects of Golden Gockerel." Illustrated throughout with many tipped-in specimens on special paper, engravings, photographs. color plates, etc. and a 1937 Matisse, "Woman's Head," as frontispiece.
