Pastoral or, Virtue Requited, by H.M.M. [Herbert H. Marks]. With wood-engravings by B.H-S [Blair Hughes-Stanton]. 8vo, pp.38, colophon, The Gemini Press, Higham, Colchester, 1935.
One of 120 copies set in Baskerville and printed on Pannekoek paper (by Blair Hughes-Stanton). Illustrated with 4 full-page wood-engravings. Grey-green hand-made paper noards, wide linen back titled in gilt on the front. A very good to fine copy. Seldom found in such nice condition.
It is interesting to note that amongst purchasers of the 'specials' were Herbert Marks (BH-S had by then divorced Gertrude Hermes and was living with Marks's wife the poet Ida Graves), Christopher Sandford at Golden Cockerel Press, and - among the 'ordinaries' Lett Haines, Ivon Hitchens, Jacob Epstein and Marion Stancioff (nee Mitchell, from Underwood School days). A copy was given to Pearl Binder 'for Russia' and another to the Spanish Aid Sale.
