‘The Wood-Engravings of John Nash’ was published in 1987 and it is only recently that we were shown a wood-engraving that had been omitted from the book. It was of a cat and brought the total number of cats to eight — six wood-engravings and two woodcuts of which the original blocks were available for five. A celebratory book seemed more appropriate than an addendum sheet. Ronald Blythe, who knew John and Christine Nash well, has written a short piece to accompany the engravings: his delightful story records the exploits of four Nash cats many generations after those depicted in the cuts in the book.
This deluxe edition is one of 50 copies to be signed by the author and include 5 proofs of the wood-engravings from the original blocks.
