by Captain Ronald A. Hopwood, R.N.
Robert Dunthorne, London & Liverpool, ca.1920.
a rare version of Captain Hopwood’s famous naval poem. the poem is printed on four etched sheets illustrated with drawings by the famous marine artist W.L. Wyllie, with each sheet signed in pencil by Wyllie. each sheet is lightly tipped onto the original stiff paper backing and all tissue guards are present. the sheets are contained in the original cloth-backed board portfolio and all the ribbon ties are present. the covers are a little marked, with slight wear to top and foot of spine, but overall in very good condition. the etched sheets are in pristine condition, with just a little light marking to the margins of the backing paper.
