Samuel Palmer said of the woodcuts: “They are visions of little dells, and nooks, and corners of paradise: models of the exquisitest pitch of intense poetry. I thought of their light and shade, and looking upon them found no word to describe it. Intense depth, solemnity, and vivid brilliancy only coldly describe them. There is in all such a mystic and dreamy glimmer as penetrates and kindles the inmost soul, and gives complete and un reserved delight...” And Calvert wrote: “They are done as if by a child; several of them careless and incorrect, yet there is a spirit in them, humble enough and of force enough to move simple souls to tears…” And finally, Laurence Binyon wrote: “They have the character of visions called up as if by moonlight out of the darkened surface of the wood…” $400.

His description of the artist and his work created such enthusiasm that he was later induced to publish it, together with some interesting documents concerning Nanteuil. The unique little book found its way into many libraries, private as well as public, and has ever since been unfindable” (Louis Metcalfe, whose copy this is, in an essay in “Prints and their Makers,” ed. by Carrington, New York, Century, 1912). $300.
