[Essex House Press- A Very Fine Copy] An Endeavor Towards the Teachings of John Ruskin and William Morris

London: Essex House Press, 1901.

First Edition. Original full natural vellum bevelled boards, gilt lettered spine. 52pp. #256 of 350 hand-numbered copies. An important and extremely scarce Essex House Press title (no copies available online at time of writing), and more so in this very fine condition. Near full-page woodcut illustration on title page, and numerous historiated initials by George Thomson. "An Endeavor" was the first book printed at the Essex House Press in new type designed by Ashbee and presents the beginning of the Guild and School of Handicraft in East London. Rarely seen, much desirable in this near pristine condition.

Price: $1,250.00   Item #6368
