GOSSIP ABOUT BOOK COLLECTING
by Andrews, William Loring
The first edition of this work has been limited to 157 copies of which this is one of the 116 copies printed on Holland paper for subscribers. (Duschnes 40; Webber 20) Gossip About Book Collecting displays 5 plates in the first volume and 7 plates in the second volume, five of which are in color. Because of Andrews' interest in bookbinding, many of the articles in the book are on bookbinding and bookbinders. Andrews was a founder of the Grolier Club and founder and president of the Society of Iconophiles. His collection was sold to a dealer shortly before his death. Beautifully printed by the Gilliss Press, this scarce title has some cover soiling and wear to outer jacket. Bookplate.
