          SAMUEL PALMER Opening the Fold (Early Morning). Etching on antique cream laid paper, 1880. 153x215 mm; 6x8 1/2 inches, wide (full ?) margins. Eighth state (of 10). A superb impression of this scarce etching, with all the details distinct. Palmer's (1805-1881) last finished etching, completed just a year before his death. He had planned a series of ten etchings to accompany the publication of his translation of the Eclogues of Virgil as his last major career project, but completed only Opening the Fold (Early Morning). Palmer made this etching to pair with the following verse from the Eclogues: "Scarce with her rosy fingers had the dawn, From glimmering heaven the veil of night withdrawn, Or folded flocks were loose to browse anew, O'er mountain thyme or trefoil wet with dew, When leaning sad an olive stem beside, These, his last numbers, hapless Damon plied." Lister 13.

Palmer, who supplied him with eight of his father's uncancelled plates for printing. In consultation with Frank Short, Professor of Engraving at the Royal College of Art and Martin Hardie, Keeper of Prints & Drawings at the Victoria & Albert Museum, he oversaw the printing of editions of 50 to 75 impressions from five of the plates. Each impression had an engraved triangle together with the Trio's (as A.H. Palmer called them) pencil initials in the lower margin. These were published by the Cotswold Gallery, London, to coincide with Hardie's ground-breaking exhibition Drawings, Etchings and Woodcuts by Samuel Palmer and Other Disciples of Blake at the Victoria & Albert Museum in 1926.

          Est: $1,500 - $2,500

          SAMUEL PALMER Opening the Fold (Early Morning). Etching on antique cream laid paper, 1880. 153x215 mm; 6x8 1/2 inches, wide (full ?) margins. Eighth state (of 10). A superb impression of this scarce etching, with all the details distinct. Palmer's (1805-1881) last finished etching, completed just a year before his death. He had planned a series of ten etchings to accompany the publication of his translation of the Eclogues of Virgil as his last major career project, but completed only Opening the Fold (Early Morning). Palmer made this etching to pair with the following verse from the Eclogues: "Scarce with her rosy fingers had the dawn, From glimmering heaven the veil of night withdrawn, Or folded flocks were loose to browse anew, O'er mountain thyme or trefoil wet with dew, When leaning sad an olive stem beside, These, his last numbers, hapless Damon plied." Lister 13.
