About This Item

Westwood, NJ: Kindle Press. Very Good+ with no dust jacket. 1971. Limited/Numbered Edition. Hardcover. Common to this edition, the spine is quite sunned compared to the dark green half cloth, but gilt lettering remains bright. A pinpoint speck to the front cover's paper. The slipcase has minor wear to corners, the tail is bumped.; Sir Walter Scott's arguably best short story of the rough life of two cattle drivers in Scotland, privately printed in celebration of his bicentennial birthday. Copy 242 of an edition of 680 and signed on the colophon by Coleman O. Parsons who wrote an extensive Foreword for this edition. Frontispiece is a fanciful lion with spread claws, printed in red. The front pastedown bears a portrait of Scott, but I'm partial to the frontis, instead. Text block trimmed at the head edge. Printed by Meriden Gravure on Hale Paper's mould-made rag paper designed by F. T. Jackson and bearing a facsimile of Sir Walter Scott's signature of 1827. Bound by A. Horowitz & Son in in half green cloth with gray, laid paper over boards. In the publisher's gray slipcase. With a card laid in, "WITH THE COMPLIMENTS/of/JOHN L. DAVENPORT - COLEMAN O. PARSONS/Privately Printed by The Kindle Press. Davenport was the founder of The Kindle Press and it's likely that this book is a keepsake for friends of the press. A clean, sharp book that's VG+ for the sunned spine, else Fine.; Decorations; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; x,35,1 pages .
