One of 95 copies only on R.W.S. hand-made paper. Each copy signed by the artist/author. Prospectus loosely inserted. A fine copy in fine slipcase. Bound by George Percival. Illustrated with four triple fold-out copperplates worked by etching and aquatint. The colors are printed in intaglio and relief, and additional color is applied to some pages by hand. The typography and printing of the text is by Will Carter at the Rampant Lions Press. The images and thoughts in this book spring from mountains spanning great segments of our sphere to wilds where trusting creatures create an idyll of Eden. Inspired by the Himalayas, the Galapagos Islands and Antarctica, the book captures the grandeur of the planet. With Prints by J.G. Lubbock.
In 1967 J.G.Lubbock retired to work on his wonderful books of engravings inspired by the spiritual nature of the landscape and the sea. They are full of atmosphere and depth of feeling and deserve their place in the history of contemporary livres d'artistes.
