Robert Gibbings. Fourteen Wood Engravings from Drawings made on Orient Line Cruises. Folio, 33cm, [32]p, illustrations on rectos only. Printed by Robert Gibbings at the Golden Cockerel Press [Waltham Saint Lawrence], 1932.

Printed on Batchelor handmade paper. Illustrated with 14 full-page and 2 smaller wood-engravings. Variant binding of quarter green cloth with blue paper-covered boards, blue endpapers, printed label superimposed on the upper cover. A very good to fine copy. Advertisement slip for proof engravings (on GCP watermarked paper) loosely inserted.

Printed by Robert Gibbings at the Golden Cockerel Press, but as a private commission and so not reckoned a Golden Cockerel item. It is more usually found in a binding of printed yellow wrappers, uncut and sewn. (Kirkus 17).
