Sitwell had a total of 56 booklets printed privately at Brackley between 1972 and 1981. Most were Limited Editions of c.100 copies only, of which a few were issued numbered and signed [see Ritchie : Sitwell Bibliography A72 &c]. This collection includes five titles dated and inscribed variously 'For Josette with much love from Sachie' : and also includes two of the scarcest titles [of which only 25 and 30 copies respectively were issued] signed & numbered by Sitwell. ** Extensive collections such as this are most unusual. This set is complete bar the very rare To E.S. [20 copies only were issued] : and the final two titles For A Floral Inebriation and Prende La Mia Chitarra [120 copies of each of these titles were issued, of which none were available to the public]. ** A fine collection very handsomely presented in two custom-made folding boxes in striking Curwen-style patterned papers.
