Rare Example of Uranian Literature

    Ralph N. Chubb. The Sun Spirit: A Visionary Phantasy. Fair Oak, near Kingsclere [England]: Privately published by the author, 1931.

    First edition of his first lithographed book limited to thirty numbered copies. Folio. [46] pages. Illustrated by the author.

    Original quarter morocco with linen over boards and vellum corners with titles stamped in gilt on the spine and titles and vignette of a nude boy stamped in gilt on the front board. The leather spine is darkened slightly and the linen boards display moderate foxing. The contents are bright and, with the exception of a former owner's bookplate on the front pastedown, it is in very good condition.

    Chubb was greatly influenced by William Blake and this work is considered a milestone in Uranian literature.
