First American edition. De Mare traces the golden era and decline of the woodblock artists during the 19th century in England, including their dramatic re-emergence with the private press advocates of the 1890s. He discusses the technique of engraving on the end grain, and the relationship between the artists of the time and their engravers. With a two page bibliography of the subject.
