Samuel Palmer: The Visionary Years - First edition

£24.99

Product description

First edition hardback (1947), green boards with dustjacket. 206 pages of text followed by 66 plates, mostly black and white reproductions of Palmer's paintings and drawings. There is one colour plate facing the title page (see our photographs).

A study of the artist Samuel Palmer's early life and work from childhood to 1835, when he was thirty years old. The author, Geoffrey Grigson, was himself a poet, travel writer, broadcaster, and literary and art critic. In this work he draws on Palmer's letters and other sources as well as the art.

The book is somewhat canted and the top ends of pages are discoloured (possibly dirty). The inside is free of inscriptions and markings. The dust wrapper is unclipped but rather grubby in places and with some small tears (the longest being approx 3.5 cm). Generally, however, it is a very good copy for its 70 years of age.
