Edited by Clifford Bax and Austin O. Spare. Volume 1, No. 1, to Volume 2, No. 8., complete set. Folio (volume 1) and 4to. (volume 2). Original publisher's cloth-backed boards, front wrappers bound in. London, Chapman & Hall. 1922 to 

An excellent set of one of the most luxurious periodicals of its type, with some minor wear to the board edges, and a paper clip stain (opposite a male nude in a vorticist style by Sidney Hunt). Among the artistic contributors we note characteristically brilliant and unsettling work by the art editor Austin Osman Spare, good illustrations by John Austen, John Nash, Glyn Philpot, Robert Gibbings, Jack Yeats and Alan Odle as well as other artists to whom history has been less generous. Evelyn Waugh is notably present, with five illustrations including the large and wonderful representation of "The Tragicall Death of Mr. Will Huskisson", as is his friend H. Graham Greene, (mis-spelled as Graham Green in the contents) with a rather good poem "The Coming", later included in Babbling April.
