Maud

by Alfred Lord Tennyson, 1900

#11 of 40

This is identical in layout to both the general unlimited edition, the 1 of 100, and the 1 of  350 variants.  The only differences are the limitation statement, the paper, the binding and illumination.  The limitation statement specifies that only 40 were printed on Imperial Japan Vellum (this one being number 11).  T.E.G.  The binding is a particularly nicely executed 3/4 Levant, ruled, with five raised bands and a wonderful intertwined floral motif, and the date, 1900, at the bottom.  Marbleized boards with matching end papers.  One of the nicest 3/4 bindings Iíve seen.  8.25 by 5.25 inches.
 

This book measures 8 1/4" x 5 1/4" and has 80 pages. The text body is set in ATF Satanick and was printed on Whatman paper. The regular edition of this book is bound in suede or paper over boards. There is also a suede edition of 100 with special illuminations and an edition of 350 bound in suede and illumined. The edition of 40 shown above, was printed on Imperial Japan Vellum and bound in 3/4 leather and marbleboard. Samuel Warner designed the initials and title page.  This book is listed in the 1900 catalog and sold for $10.00
