Moore, George

Peronnik the Fool.

William Edwin Rudge, Mount Vernon, New York, 1926

CHF 75.–

Limited edition of Moore’s ‘Peronnik The Fool’, designed by Bruce Rogers (1870–1957). One of 785 copies.

Description: Original blue paper covered boards, printed design to the boards in red and yellow. Printed spine label in red. Octavo: 23.5 × 15 cm; pp. 68, [2].

Condition: Externally, very minor abrasions and marks of usage. Internally, clean and free of marks.

Notes: Moore’s novel is printed here for the first time in its own volume. The first edition was printed in 1924 with Daphnis and Chloe. Bruce Rogers stated: “That is a pseudo-medieval romance, so pseudo-medieval trimmings seemed appropriate. The choice of black-letter and civilité type for the title and chapter heads conveys something of the flavor of the tale, without interfering in any way with the plain legibility of the text”.
