Cetacea, The Great Whale

Cetacea, The Great Whale

Easthampton, MA: Cheloniidae Press, [1981]. Hardcover. Number 23 of 100 copies, signed by the artist (Alan James Robinson), binders (David Bourbeau and Gray Parrot), and printer (Harold Patrick McGrath). The total issue was 110 copies including 10 artists' proofs. This copy includes an autographed letter signed from Robinson to Joel Bernstein written on card printed by Robinson with a whale wood engraving. Also included is an original water color of Bernstein's "favorite" whale species which Robinson has included to thank him for his patience while waiting for the edition to be completed. The prospectus is laid in. "Roaming the seas in the course of their yearly migration, these largest of creatures ever known to inhabit our water planet have been held in fear and affection, awe and fascination by humankind. As a result, whales are an integral part of our oral, written and artistic history. The oldest known detailed drawings of whales were found in caves in Norway and date back to at least 4000 BC. The publication of this portfolio thus expands upon a 6000 year old tradition depicting whales as the subject of human focus and expression" (Thomas B. Grooms). The artist Alan Robinson is also a master printer who established the Cheloniidae Press, later called The Press of the Sea Turtle, in 1979. The press has published 27 letterpress books. This book includes seven striking bleed etchings by Robinson which depict twelve major species of whales including the Bowhead, Beluga, Killer, Blue, Sperm, Minke, Finback, Humpback, Gray, Sei, Narwhal, and Right Whale. Each etching is accompanied by a page of text detailing biological information about the species and a two-color map showing migration routes and breeding areas. The title page and colophon feature wood engravings and there are blind stamped line-cuts of whales along the margins of the text on several pages. The etchings, each of which are signed by the artist were printed by him at the Cheloniidae Press. The text and wood engravings were printed by Harold Patrick McGrath at the Hampshire Typothetae. There are tissue guards for each print and blue patterned end pages. The illustrations and text are loose as issued and are housed in an oblong folder. The front panel and spine of the folder are covered in Niger oasis goat skin which has been sculpted with the head of a Right Whale in low relief by David Bourbeau of the Thistle Bindery. The rear panel is covered in black cloth. This beautiful and elaborate folder is housed in a black cloth box with morocco spine titled in gilt. The box is in very good condition with browning to the spine, a few scuff marks to the covers and light wear to the corners. The box was created by Gray Parrot. This project was produced in conjunction with a grant from the Environmental Marine Arts Fund which is part of the Center for Environmental Education and the Whale Protection Fund. Page size: 22 x 15 inches. Fine.
