DENIS TEGETMEIER – A Sentimental Journey, 1936
Sheet size: 290x225 mm
Image size: 70x85 mm
Edition: 1500 – Unsigned
An original etching by Denis Tegetmeier, printed by Eric Gill and Renée Hague. From copy 719/1500 of Tegetmeier's edition of Laurence Sterne's A Sentimental Journey Through France and Italy, published by the Limited Editions Club. Sold with a copy of the justification page signed by Denis Tegetmeier and Eric Gill. This particular etching was made for the title page, and has the title of the book printed above and the words "by Laurence Sterne/with etchings by Denis Tegetmeier/Printed for the Members of/The Limited Editions Club/at High Wycombe, England/MCMXXXVI" printed below. The type could be easily framed out, but as it is not just printed by Eric Gill but set in a typeface specially designed for this project (this face was later named Bunyan), we would be tempted to frame the whole page. A photo of this can be sent on request. Condition: Fine.
