A scarce first edition limited to 280 copies, of which this is number 263.

Complete, with 50 tipped-in facsimilies of bookplates designed by Edward Gordon Craig. There is an additional tipped-in original woodcut, signed by Craig.

Craig relied on designing bookplates to keep himself afloat while establishing a presence in British theatre, the profession for which he is primarily known. This charming title is a love letter to the bookplate, and each example provided is unique and catered to the interests of its owner. There are bookplates designed for many notable names of the stage, including Craig's mother Ellen Terry, and Isadora Duncan, the mother of two of his children.
