Robert Graves

To Whom Else?

Majorca: Seizin Press, 1931. Stk. +PR 6013 R35 T6.

The Seizin Press, founded by Robert Graves and Laura (Riding) Jackson in 1927, was devoted to printing original literary materials, much like Virginia and Leonard Woolf’s Hogarth Press. It was first established in London at 35a St Peter’s Square, Hammersmith, and then moved to Deya, Majorca in 1930. The thirteen books Graves and Riding printed were not sumptuous. They were often plain format productions, convenient vehicles for their poetry and prose, and other writers such as Gertrude Stein. The binding of this poetry book is by the New Zealand born film-maker and kinetic artist, Len Lye (1901-1980). It is signed by Graves and is no. 147 of 200 copies.
