The Australian Ex Libris Society. Bookplate Artists. Number One: Adrian Feint [cover title]
Sydney, The Australian Ex Libris Society (and printed at the Beacon Press), 1934.
Octavo (242 x 158 mm),  pages with 20 tipped-in bookplates (including 5 in monochrome and 7 with two or more colours, with those for Frank E. Lane and Thea Proctor extensively hand-coloured).
Overlapping green-pictorial card covers with French flaps; pictorial title-label (almost certainly a woodcut design by Feint) mounted on the front cover; top edge lightly foxed; a minute amount of silverfish damage to the front flap; essentially a fine copy.
Number 113 of 150 copies signed by Adrian Feint; it was presumably hand-set and hand-printed by Harrie Mortlock at his Beacon Press. Mounted on the exposed surface of the front flap is the large two-colour bookplate (by George Perrottet, 1942) of Edward Edgar Pescott (1872-1954), horticulturalist, naturalist, author, bibliographer, and very keen collector of books and bookplates. The contents include two essays ('Bookplates of Adrian Feint' by Carlyle S. Baer, and 'Adrian Feint and His Work' by John Lane Mullins), a checklist of 145 bookplates from 1922 to 1933, and an annotated bibliography.
