BARCLAY, EDGAR
Stonehenge and Its Earth-Works. With Plans and Illustrations
London, D. Nutt. 1895, First Edition. Cloth. Ill.: Barclay, Edgar; Various. Book, 4to. (1 plate) xi, (1 plate) 152 (3 folding plans) pp. Maroon cloth with gilt to spine; top-edge gilt; edges uncut. Neat ownership name. Frontispiece with tissue-guard. One or two loose sheets, otherwise a nice complete example of this scarce detailed study of Stonehenge, including (folding) plans and illustrations. Edgar Barclay was a distinguished and prolific painter and etcher, and a member both of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers, and of the Royal Institute of Oil-Painters. Moreover he was also an accomplished archaeologist and prehistorian, and his lifelong interest in Stonehenge resulted ultimately in this publication, having already addressed the British Archaeological Association in June 1893. Illustrated throughout and includes thirteen collotypes by Barclay himself. Woodcut initials to each chapter. Very Good.
