London: The Nonesuch Press, 1981. Sm. folio,. xv, [1], 319, [3] pp. Illustrated throughout. Publisher's full wine linen with gilt-stamped medallion and gilt lettered spine. Dust jacket. A very fine copy. Edition limited to 950 numbered copies, this being copy no. 867. A well printed and illustrated updated bibliography of the famous press run by Francis Meynell. Modestly, Meynell once stated that every book he designed and printed was flawed, but, as he noted, his effort was to make each book interesting and in this he certainly succeeded. This revised edition of the bibliography, first printed in 1936 with 100 tipped-in plates, is an excellent and necessary companion to, but not a replacement for, the original. (Item Id: 122675)
