About This Item

Bayntun: The Dropmore Press,, 1947. Quarto. Original blue cloth by Evans, titles to spine in gilt, publisher's device to front cover in gilt, turn-ins tooled in gilt, edges untrimmed. With dust jacket. Housed in the publisher-issued slipcase (light wear to extremities). Printed in pink and black. The binding sharp, internally crisp. A fine copy in the near-fine jacket, spine panel toned and a little scuffed, else clean and fresh. First edition, limited issue, number 344 of 550 copies on handmade paper, presentation copy inscribed on the half-title "Inscribed for Lucienne Gow by V. Sackville-West". The recipient was the first chairman of the Tenterden Trust, in current Ashford Borough, near Sissinghurst. Only the first 25 copies were issued signed, inscribed copies are rather uncommon. Lucienne Gow was also an artist and painter, sometimes signing "Lugow", who frequented the London theatres in the 1950s and helped with set design and decors.
