Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

Robert Louis Stevenson

synopsis

The classic novel of personality transference is an acknowledged masterpiece and one of the most influential novels ever written. Now with a new introduction by Patrick McGrath, a stunning suite of fifteen wood engravings by Barry Moser, a front cover by James Bama, gorgeous endpapers by Aeron Alfrey, a back cover by Basil Gogos, a fascinating typographical treatment that destabilizes the text, a handful of Stevenson’s best horror short stories, and a fantastic cover gallery of old film posters in full color. The book is presented in our oversize format, 8 × 12 inches, the same as the other books in our Gothic series.
      The wood engravings by Barry Moser are exquisite. They were originally published in small size by the University of Nebraska Press. Mr Moser personally retouched all of the engravings for this edition, and he also created three new wood engravings just for this new edition. One of America’s most renowned artists, Mr Moser’s work has graced some of the finest and most collectible limited editions ever published, including books from the Arion Press and Moser’s own acclaimed Pennyroyal Press.
      Each numbered copy is signed by Patrick McGrath, Basil Gogos, Barry Moser and Aeron Alfrey. The edition is limited to 20 copies for sale. The books are quarter-bound in leather with printed front and rear panels with printed endpapers, ribbon marker, traycase, and a special suite of prints of the wood engravings, each one signed by Barry Moser. Sample page spreads appear below. Note: this item will not ship until late March to mid April.
       There is also a trade edition available. Click here for more information.
