Historie de Peau D'Ane (Conte de ma mere loye)

London: Eragny Press, 1902.

Pissaro, Lucien.

With woodcut borders and initials by Lucien Pissaro and three wood-engravings by T. Sturge Moore. The Eragny Press was the private concern of Lucien Pissaro and his wife Esther, established with the assistance of Charles Shannon and Charles Ricketts of the Vale Press. Sturge Moore wrote on the books printed by Eragny: "If they are precious, honour them, be liberal for them. We must have fewer then; but those few shall be beautiful on the table, on the shelf, in the hand; while we muse on the meaning, the eye shall rest happily on the page where fair proportions have been sought and established between margin and text, between type and page." (Franklin 'The Private Presses' p. 98).
