Product description

On the Making of Etchings - Frank Short

Robert Dunthorne, at the sign of the Rembrandt Head in Vigo Street. W.
Printed at the Chiswick Press of C Whittingham and Co., Chancery Lane.

Fading blue paper covered card covers with black titles and imagery, quarter bound to spine in similarly fading blue cloth. The boards are water stained to front and red ink stained to rear. It adds authenticity to a very rare book.

The author has added a handwritten signed dedication in the end paper: "To my friend Frank Bottomley, April 1889, Frank Short".
Rear inner hinge is cracked (not badly) and there is a neat note in red ink dated 1989.

34 pages including a handful of lovely black and white images and some sepia of the subject matter and numerous marginalia showing tools of the trade and tips for the student engraver.

A fabulous book for the collector of the genre, very scarce.

Oxfam Bookshop Market Harborough

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller. Oxfam bookshops offer a wider selection of books than most shops, from modern fiction and leisure interest to more specialist subjects, classics, and rare or collectable books. We also stock an attractive range of greetings cards and a good selection of stationery. Come and browse!

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
