Cupid & Psyche. Translated into English by J.H. Mason from the original Latin... Woodcuts by Vivien Gribble. Privately Printed by J.H. Mason, 1928/ Sm.folio, no.89 of 'about 130 copies'; pp.(2)41(4); 12 woodcut illustrations by Gribble; beautifully printed on heavy Batchelor's oak-leaf & acorn watermarked paper; a very good uncut copy in original marbled cloth, paper label; John Mason's essay on his father, 'J.H. Mason, The Imprint and the Cranach Press', from N.S.A.E. Journal, laid in. Mason's long colophon records the book's complex gestation, delayed by his work at the Central School and Cranach Press. 'Later he was further hindered by cataract in both eyes and loss of sight... Intended as an example of book printing for the love of the work, for the printer and his friends', only c40 copies were bound up and distributed on publication. The remaining 90 resurfaced in sheets in the 1950s and were bound up in various styles. A fine example of Gribble's very individual style; 'of uncompromisingly strong black line...with the same quality of frozen action of figures on a Greek vase, which gives them a certain tension.' Engraved in 1916, this work should have launched her artistic career, but by the time it appeared at the Arts & Crafts Society exhibition of Nov.1935, Vivien Gribble had succumbed to cancer.

12 73 LOWENFELS, Walter. Elegy in the manner of a requiem In memory of D.H. Lawrence.

New York born poet & long-time Communist, Lowenfels fled to Paris from the family business and started the Carrefour Press with Michael Fraenkel in The pamphlet 'Anonymous: The Need for Anonymity' set out their credo that anonymous publication was the only way to avoid artistic competition and alienation, and Lowenfels' play, USA with Music, was published anonymously by Carrefour. However a plagiarism suit brought by Lowenfels against George Gershwin in 1932 forced Carrefour and Lowenfels to reveal the author's identity and subsequent Carrefour titles identified the author. Typographically undistinguished, the style is close to Nancy Cunard's Hours Press which had published Lowenfel's Apollinaire in LUBBOCK, J.G. Landfall.
