Lucien Pissarro and The Eragny Press - Limited Edition

£175.00

Product description

Privately printed in 1957 by Cambridge University Press. These 'Notes on the Ergny Press, and a Letter to J B Manson' by Lucien Pissarro are edited with a supplement by Alan Fern.

One of a limited edition of five hundred copies printed and bound at the University Press, Cambridge for presentation by the University Printer to friends in printing and publishing at Christmas 1957.

Includes a Preface explaining how the notes were found during the 1930s; an engraving by Gilbert Polliot of Pissarro at his press; Pissarro's notes on the Eragny Press; A letter to J B Manson from Pissarro giving a fuller discussion about the technical issues he encountered; 24 pages of prints of Pissaro's engravings (in colour and black & white) from the says of the Press; and Alan Fern's supplement talking about the artist's work.

Lucien Pissarro (1863 – 1944) was a landscape painter, print-maker, wood engraver and designer and printer of fine books. The Eragny Press was borne out of Lucien’s desire to recreate that antique feel of wood-cut printing, specialising in classic and antiquarian short tales such as Grimm’s fairy tales, Francis Bacon’s monologues, scripts from the bible and short verse. Although operating throughout the late nineteenth century and into the twentieth, the sensibilities of the Press instead turned to an earlier age, with decorative borders reminiscent of the Renaissance, romance and fantasy.
Today the Eragny Press is recognised as one of the leading art private presses of its times

This is book produced to a high standard, printed on quality paper, and attractively bound with decorated board cover. This was obviously produced to showcase the Cambridge University Press' fine printing work.

All in excellent condition. Binding tight and almost as good as when new. There is some light yellowing to the edges of the board cover and spine.
