Places: 7 Prints From Woodblocks Designed and Engraved by Paul Nash.

NASH, Paul

Limited edition; 4to; original cloth backed boards with the first print repeated on the front cover. Signed by Nash, this being number 47 of 55 copies on japon paper with designs printed directly from the woodblocks. Places is unique among Nash's illustrated books for, apart from the printing it is entirely his own work. He wrote the 'prose poems' designed the cover, title page and illustrations and the text is printed in a facsimile of his hand writing. Claire Colvin writes that 'Places is a very private book; all the locations are ones which Nash had a very strong personal involvement'. This example is preserved in the rare original box covered in paper design by Nash, large printed label on upper cover, one joint neatly repaire. Fine a lovely copy, with a bump to one corner.
