Taylor B1. One of 300 copies. This was the first commissioned work done for another institution by Henry Morris at his Bird & Bull Press. The printed cover design is repeated on a second sheet of salmon colored paper as a watermark. The catalogue describes 75 landmark books on papermaking and is an excellent "high spot" bibliography of the field. Signed by Henry Morris and presentation from Leonard Schlosser to Ellen Shaffer, librarian of the Free Library.
