Whistler, Laurence.


Rupert Hart-Davis 1959.
1st Ed. Royal 8vo. 38pp. Frontis., 88 plates. With the prospectus loosely inserted. Ex.-Jewellery Trade Centre with several ink stamps, gilt ruled two tone cloth with ills. laid down to upper board, very sl. browning, d/w. chipped and creased to edges with marginal loss, t.e.g. A selection from Whistler’s work as a glass engraver in the 1950s, including commissions for the Queen and Queen Mother and a glass designed to carry a poem by T.S. Eliot. As a commercial proposition for a publisher it can scarcely have been viable in the 1950s: but it is now long out of print and eminently collectable.
