Money Creek [MN]: Sutton Hoo Press, 2013. Octavo, light blue cloth with three quarter marble board front cover, fore and bottom edge uncut, top edge rough cut. First edition. Signed by Weighell. This book was limited to one hundred copies, however only fifty copies of the sheets were actually bound by the publisher, of which only 22 were made available for sale. An antiquarian ghost story written specifically for this publisher. Summers, a scholar, comes to Venice to research the life of Sigisomondo Mortensa, the 16th-century architect who designed the Church of Saint Bartholomew. As he studies the marginalia in various books in Mortensa’s library, Summers uncovers the horrific truth about Mortensa’s relationship with Antonio Borsini, a young apprentice who vanished mysteriously during the church's construction after being publicly denounced for his participation in blasphemous activities. A fine copy. A lovely example of hand letter press book in a fine binding. (20244). Item #20244
