A stunning collection of wood engravings created by Lucien Pissarro, son of Camille Pissarro, to illustrate the books published by his private press. Arriving in London just as the Arts and Crafts movement was growing, Lucien founded the Eragny Press that ran for twenty years and published 32 titles leaving a legacy of the French impressionistic interest in color and light and the English aesthetic of Arts and Crafts design. With 62 illustrations of wood engravings and numerous other color and black and white illustrations. Very fine.
