2004. This is # 22 of 250 numbered copies and contains an extra tipped-in plate on page 32, being prints from the wood of five engravings made by Ravilious for the 'Everyman Library'. This extra plate was for subscribers only of the Incline Press. This is an attractive book, with three essays by Dr. Alan Powers, Barry Kitts & Ronald Maddox, looking respectively at: the 20th century English watercolour revival; Eric Ravilious at Castle Hedingham, Essex; and the watercolour techniques and materials of Ravilious.

There are 6 attractive colour Ravilious prints tipped-in. Hardback book, p.32, 8" x 11", with dove blue Ravilious design decorated paper pasted on boards; dark blue buckram spine; typeface is Walbaum; printed on Zerkall paper. Also laid into the book is a facsimile of a letter sent by 'Edward', Edward Bawden to 'Gwyneth' (most likely Gwyneth Lloyd Thomas, a friend of Edward Bawden's wife Charlotte), dated Nov 8 1939, from Brick House, Great Bardfield. The letter, containing news/gossip, appears to have accompanied a book sent to her at that time. Condition: as new. Price shown includes tracked shipping/mail to most destinations.
