An Autobiographical textbook. First edition, 1940. Hardback. 388pp. Illustrated boards. No dust jacket. John Farleigh, painter, illustrator and engraver, is probably best known for his illustrations to George Bernard Shaw's "Black Girl in Search of God". He also illustrated some of the works of D. H. Lawrence and Sacahverell Sitwell. He was a member of the Wood Engraving Society and the Arts and Crafts Exhibition Society and was, at one time, Art Instructor at Rugby School and then Instructor at the Central School of Arts & Crafts, Bloomsbury. This is both an autobiography and a discourse on some aspects of the engraver's technique. The book is well illustrated and of particular interest are the reproductions of wood engravings in various states. Book in good condition. Boards very slightly bowed and lightly soiled. Extremities of spine a little rubbed and some discolouration to spine. Faint toning and very slight spotting to endpapers.
