    Additional Information

    Nicholson's Alphabet was published shortly before Christmas 1897 (its title-page was post dated 1898) in three editions that set the pattern for future publications of the same kind: an Edition de Luxe consisting of 26 impressions taken from the original woodblocks and `Library' and `Popular' editions in which the hand-coloured cuts were reproduced lithographically.
