SIGNED BY ERROL LE CAIN
LE CAIN, Errol (illustrator). Walter PATER (author). Cupid and Psyche. London; Faber And Faber. 1977.
Small folio. Original glazed pictorial boards; pp. ; with 23 beautiful and stylised full-page monochrome plates by Le Cain; a fine, fresh copy with none of the frequently seen bruising to corners or foxing to endpapers, with the printed price of £3.95 to lower board blocked out by the publisher with the price of £4.50 printed alongside; elusive in this condition.
First edition, issued without a dustwrapper. A presentation copy from the author, inscribed "For Leon and Vivien, with best wishes" and signed "Errol" in ink to the front free endpaper. A very striking, and attractive, adaptation of Walter Pater's story of Cupid and Psyche, taken from Marius the Epicurean.
