The Bookplates of G.D. Perrottet

Adelaide, Wakefield Press, 1942.

Octavo, 24, [1] (colophon) pages with 12 tipped-in bookplates by George Perrottet (most are printed in two or three colours, several have applied hand-colouring).

Plain saddle-stapled card covers with attached overlapping wrappers (lightly soiled and faded, with minimal conservation to the head of the spine); leaves a little cockled where the bookplates are tipped in; minor signs of use (see below); a very good copy, with the bookplates in fine condition.

Number 145 of 275 copies. This is the second publication of Harry Muir's Wakefield Press. Provenance: Johannes Larsen, with his small name-stamp on the title page and his pictorial bookplate on the front flap (this Australian bookplate and its artist, M.G. Wood, do not appear in Peake's 'Australian Personal Bookplates'). Larsen has placed a small red X next to twenty bookplates in the checklist of 165, and pencilled in details of the publications where some are to be found.
