New York: Grolier Club, 1999. 4to. cloth. xxx, (ii), 110 pages. With 100 full-page examples of title- pages, facsimiles, and illustrations, some in color. Original dark blue cloth lettered in gilt on the upper cover and backstrip, as new. Ephemera related to the book loose at the front. Printed at the Stinehour Press in an edition limited to two hundred and fifty case bound copies set in Dante type, designed by Jerry Kelly. "The idea of one book a year, on average, seems almost presumptuous. Yet one must begin somewhere, and celebrate the chosen, rather than lament the many left unsung. This catalogue is intended to give a glimpse of how the generations of the past century have displayed knowledge and taste in raising printing to an art." (Item Id: 110840)
