The Good Citizen's Alphabet. Bertrand Russell.

The Good Citizen's Alphabet

London: Gaberbocchus Press, 1953. First edition. 8vo, unpaginated, bound in red cloth titled in green at the spine. Illustrated with 28 drawings by Franciszka Themerson. With two folding promotional card prospectuses for the book laid in.

An abecedary by the philosopher and logician, illustrated with drawings by Franciszka Themerson - a felicitious pairing. Laid in are two promotional prospectuses for the book, one a small folding card entitled P is for Pedant Who Wrote This Book," with a space on the back cover for denoting bookstores which carried the book - here blank - and a folding card printed in blue addressed to Lady Celia, addressing criticisms of the press and describing this book and other publications, as well as explaining the namesake of the press.

The work has been reprinted various times, most recently in a facsimile edition by the Tate.

Strip of fading to the front panel of the cloth, else near fine, in a dust jacket that is darkened at spine and extremities with several tears, but unclipped and complete and about very good. Item #30078

Price: $250.00
