Twenty-one pencil drawings (one heightened in Indian ink), consisting of preliminary studies by Alan James Robinson for the first book of Chloniidae Press, published in 1980. Each drawing is signed by the artist, in pencil; a number bear titles and brief notations regarding the wood engraving of the design. Each sheet measures approximately 36 cm. x 28 cm.
A laid-in note from a previous owner indicates that this set of drawings were sold via a New York bookseller in 1983 in order "to enable the artist to purchase the paper for his next book."
Drawings housed in black decorative paper over boards; black morocco backstrip; enclosed in black cloth clamshell case with black morocco backstrip.
