London, Golden Cockerel Press, 1947. Limited Edition. Hardback. 422/500 Copies. A very good copy. Keats's expansion of the Greek Myth. Influential in the realm of speculative fiction, perhaps most-famously with Simmons's Hyperion Cantos. Bound by Sangorski and Sutcliffe as issued. Vellum spine. Tape ghosting to endpapers. Spine a little toned. A stunning book. Considered to be Buckland-Wright's magnum opus. Uncommon. This copy presented with a private proof by Buckland-Wright. The proof depicts Christopher Sandford who, with Owen Rutter had purchased Golden Cockerel in 1933. The proof is around 40mm x 40mm mounted on a folder card around 80mm square. Buckland-Wright has inscribed the card cover 'Without Comment \ ! \ JBW'. The typed envlope has been edited by hand too, though we don't have a comparison for Buckland-Wright's handwriting other than the card, it seems unlikely to be in Buckland-Wright's hand. Envelope a little foxed. A little toning to a few leaves. Illustrations by John Buckland-Wright [6553, Hyraxia Books].
