Numerous Names Nimbly Narrated

New York: Oxford University Press, (1930). Single volume, measuring 11 x 8.5 inches: [64]. Original color pictorial paper boards, blue cloth spine. Single-sided leaves colored en pochoir, text block uncut. No dust jacket, light shelfwear and smudging to binding.

First American edition, bound from the English sheets, of this whimsical Art Deco ABC by Ruth Sandys (1880-1941), one of the artistic daughters of Pre-Raphaelite painter Frederick Sandys. Each letter of the alphabet inspires a brilliantly colored pochoir illustration and an alliterative phrase: “Opulent Oliver Orgy Oysters Overeaten Overcome Ooooh!” Ruth Sandys is best remembered for the posters she designed for the London Underground. A very good copy of a striking book, text bright and clean.

Price: $300.00
