WILLIAMSON, Henry. The Star Born. Faber & Faber Limited. 1933.
8vo. Original turquoise vellum lettered in gilt on spine, t.e.g.; pp. 235, illustrated with wood-engravings by C.F. Tunnicliffe, with pp. 16 proof sheets signed in red ink by Williamson; spine faded, otherwise a very good copy. Provenance: front pastedown with pencilled note: "Sir Geoffrey Faber's copy purchased from Lady Faber March 1977."
First edition, one of only 70 numbered copies, this one out of series. The Star Born is a later continuation to Williamson's earlier tetralogy The Flax of Dream, and is a fantasy about a mystical child brought up in a world of owls and animal spirits. This edition is noted for the crispness of the type and Tunnicliffe's woodcuts on the hand-made paper.
