Whistler, Laurence.

ENGRAVED GLASS 1952-58.

Rupert Hart-Davis 1959.
1st Ed. Slim Royal 8vo. 38pp. Frontis., 88 b/w. plates from photos. Prospectus loosely inserted, ex.-Jewellery Trade Centre with several ink stamps throughout, gilt ruled two tone cloth with illus. laid down to upper board, very sl. browning, in chipped and lightly browned d/w., 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.
