Order Nr. 122992

Limited to 240 copies, of which 220 were for sale, and printed entirely by hand. Some illustrations tipped-in. A fine copy.

Includes recollections of Walters as "father and teacher" by the authors, and a checklist of his work by John Gray. Printer's note and acknowledgments. Frontispiece, fifty blocks printed from wood on an Albion Press dated 1853, forty color illustrations. The Magnani mouldmade paper was dampened before printed, with Caslon type set at Whittington.

From the artist's website: "Edward Walters, wood engraver and publisher who ran his own private press in the 1930s, also taught at Marlborough College and had links to St Dominics Press, along with various presses operated by religious orders. His work has been shown in several issues of Matrix, but it is high time his work is recorded in book form.

Tom Walters has written a short biographical note on his father, and has been able to provide photographs which handsomely augment the mere three previously known. Richard Russell was taught to print while at Marlborough by Walters, 70 years ago, and here writes of his debt to this unassuming and modest man. John Gray has produced a revised bibliography of the printed work, including Walters ephemera, enlarging Fr. Brocard Sewell's previous checklist."
