This remarkable piece of detective work by the Editor throws new light upon the work of Spare-he was an art thief! Many of the decorated initials that Spare claimed to have designed were in fact copied from the works of others! However, the Editor also recovers some work which Spare published under a pseudonym in Form Magazine, & restores it to the corpus of known Spare work. Eight Poems by W.B. Yeats & The Grotesque by Edmund Sullivan are reprinted with the illustrations now known to be by Spare, together with Twelve Poems by J.C. Squire, which Spare claimed to have illustrated & decorated. Although these discoveries do not affect the occult significance of Spare's work they may now be viewed, by some people, very differently. Also raised is the question of authenticity regarding some of Spare's very elaborate & 'formal' alleged automatic drawings-the Spare & Carter illustrated essay entitled Automatic Drawing is reproduced.
Description:Softcover. Small Quarto. Printed decorated wrappers....Softcover. Small Quarto. Printed decorated wrappers. Illustrations. Text etc. printed in four colours. In his Introduction Anthony Naylor argues that a number of the capital letters and other decorations that are attributed to Spare in publications such as J.C. Squire's "Twelve Poems" were actually "lifted" from earlier sources. There follows a detailed assembly of the works in question ("The Stolen Fire") and then a selection of the works which contained capitals, tailpieces etc. by Spare (legitimate and otherwise): "Eight Poems" by W.B. Yeats; "The Grotesque" by Edmund Sullivan, "Automatic Drawing" by Austin Osman Spare and Frederick Carter (all from "Form" magazine); and "Twelve Poems" by J.C. Squire. Front cover curling a little, and bump to top fore-edge corner, causing a slight rippling of the page corners. Neat felt-tip mark across bottom edge of text block (perhaps indicating that because of the bump the book was considered a "hurt"). Otherwise VG or better condition.
