The Holy Sonnets of John Donne. With an introduction by Clare Gaster, illustrated with wood engravings by Jill Barker. Crown 4to, 26cm, 47p, Alembic Press, Winchester, 1986.

Text set in 12 and 18pt Bembo and printed on Zerkall paper. Illustrated with six wood engravings by Jill Barker. Number 6 of just 25 copies specially bound in full tan calf and marbled boards with vellum tips by Tim Wiltshire (spine a little faded). A very good copy indeed.

'...The boxwood rounds used by Jill came from a log found in my in-laws garden ttwenty years ago, suffering from rot but with some still usable areas. Luckily Jill was happy to make the blemishs part of her design. As the blocks were so uneven in shape the were printed on the Albion.' (Claire Bolton)
