Limited to 50 numbered copies, signed by binder Charles van Sandwyk on colophon. A collection of etchings from the first twenty-one years of the author's career, from when he first learned the intaglio process. van Sandwyk describes his own experience with the process and the influence of Rembrandt van Rijn, Albrecht Durer, and Arthur Rackham as his exemplars. Six tipped-in illustrations. Prefatory comments note that the essay in this work first appeared in Twenty-One Years, Twenty-One Prints, a deluxe edition of ten copies. This issue was printed at the same time, from the same type and setting, with slightly reduced page dimensions.
