Fauns and Ladies


Jack Lindsay.

From the hand-press of J. Kirtley.


Jack Lindsay. Fauns and Ladies. Sydney: Hand-press of J.Kirtley, 1923. With three original woodcuts by Norman Lindsay. Folio, quarter-lambskin over papered boards. Limited to 210 copies but not all copies were made up. This in no. 180. With plain brown paper dust-jacket with title on paper label on the spine.

Very Good/Very Good. Some marks on the versos of where the plates have been tipped in (aging glue?), some very minor foxing on eps and on one or two other leaves. The boards are slightly darkened along the fore-edges and foot. The dust-jacket is slightly edgeworn and the paper lable on the spine has chips to the head and foot (no loss).

Scarce copy of an early work of poetry by Jack Lindsay and a forerunner of what was to come with the establishment Fanfrolico Press, one of Australia’s finest private publishing houses.
