Eight Poems by Edward Thomas, with etchings by Arthur Neal. Royal 4to, [28]p, Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts, London, [? 1974].

Handset and printed in 24-point Bembo on heavy Royal Cornwall paper, numbered 4/5 and signed by the artist (There were also eight copies on Velin cuvee). Illustrated with 6 full-pageand 7 smaller etchings from zinc plates. One of a total bound edition of ten copies in full natural morocco with gilt spine lettering. A fine copy.

Alterations to the colophon by the artist, make it difficult to decide how many copies of this book were actually produced, but certainly it was no more than nine or ten. Arthur Neal studied at Camberwell School of Art, 1969-1974, and the colophon claims the plates were proofed 1972-1973. In 1978, Neal illustrated a centenary celebration of Edward Thomas.
