One significant flaw: This issue contained original etching by McBey, signed in pen beneath the image by the artist, which has been removed causing the corresponding page - limited edition - to be loose.

An important catalogue raisonné of the etched and dry-point work of James McBey during the first two decades of his long and distinguished career.

James McBey 1883 -1959) was a self-taught artist and etcher whose prints were highly valued during the later stages of the etching revival in the early 20th century.
