First edition, limited to 500 numbered copies. Dodgson traces the career and oeuvre of the British engraver Stephen Gooden in this study. Gooden helped revive the practice of line engraving in England after WWI. An attempt has been made to illustrate all engravings mentioned.

Printed by the Curwen Press. Spine faded. Initials hand-lettered in calligraphic script on front free endpaper.
