I am not an LEC collector but one of my favorite local bookstores just listed the following:

Laurence Sterne; Denis Tegetmeier illus.; Eric Gill design
A Sentimental Journey Through France and Italy Limited Edition, Signed by Tegetmeier and Gill

Very Good+. Item #8532

High Wycombe, England: Limited Editions Club, 1936. First Thus, limited to 1500 copies of which this is no. 565. Quarto (29.5cm.); publisher's tan decorative cloth, upper cover embossed in blue and pink, gilt-lettered spine, top edge gilt, housed in later glassine dust jacket and original blue moiré cloth slipcase, printed paper spine onlay; 4,vi,6,135pp.; engraved title page vignette and eight full-page illus.

A lovely production, the type designed by Gill expressly for this edition.

I thought that it might be of interest to someone here.

What's the book store?

That would have helped, wouldn't it?


Sorry about that!

Thanks! I went ahead and got it. After reading Tristram Shandy last year this book jumped onto my to-acquire list.

I'll recommend another DC store - Bartleby's Books. I bought many LECs from them two weeks ago and got to know the couple who run it out of their home. Nice people to do business with, and they still have a decent number of LECs in stock. The ones I got are all quite nice and were fairly priced.
