by A.B. Christopher, Illustrated by Natalie d'Arbeloff

1974. Edition of 75.  35 X 25 X 6.5cm.

Sixteen extracts from the book by A.B.Christopher, first published in 1954 (Philosophical Library, New York). This limited edition was edited, designed, illustrated with etchings and hand-printed by NdA.

18 double leaves plus title wrapper, held in drop-back box with quarter leather spine and Ivory Vellum cover, deeply embossed from etched plates. Seventeen etchings printed by the viscosity method (several colors from one plate). Hand-set text in 18-point Garamond, printed on Barcham Green mould-made paper on an ancient Eagle hand press at the World's End Press, London.


The original edition offered here is the NUMBER ONE copy, signed by author and artist, and housed in a specially made clamshell case with embossed covers and embossed leather spine.


Each print is embossed on a separate page, numbered and signed by the artist.

Condition of sixteen, illustrated separate page extracts: fine to very fine.

Each vellum page is 12 inches by 17-1/2 inches, with colored embossed print on left side and extract from Christophers, THE WORD ACCOMPLISHED, on the right.

Condition of clamshell case: very good; some light wear to top and bottom, as well as corners; stain on upper portion of leather spine.

A spiritual meditation, in words that could be an apocryphal New Testament but also belong in the tradition of sacred texts of all religions.

The author of The Word Accomplished was the artist's father, Alexander d'Arbeloff, using the pseudonym A.B.Christopher. While his life was filled with many achievements in various fields, this unsung book was the closest to his heart. Those who have discovered it for themselves feel the same.

"... But never again as during that all too short period when he and I were one person, when the fulfilled future and the wistful past were mingled in a single gorgeous moment -- when life was literally a dream...."  F. Scott Fitzgerald, from 'Early Success,' The Crack Up, October 1937
