Limited to 20 copies (Peich 1). McCurdy's first published work. The 2nd and 3rd chapters of the book of Genesis in the Old Testament of the Bible. Bound in quarter blue patterned cloth and light blue-gray Fabriano paper boards. Handprinted on double-fold Japanese Masa paper by McCurdy. Pendle Press on colophon. The press's name was changed to Hillside Press, then the Penmaen Press, when McCurdy found other printers using the same names (Finding Aid, Penmaen Press records, Dodd Research Center, University of Connecticut, Storrs). Broadside "An Introductory Comment as to the Aims & Aspirations of the Hillside Press" laid in. Very rare. Also present is another version of this broadside in a different typographic arrangment with a pencil note that states that this version was not used. Cloth portion of boards stained. Paper portion of boards lightly faded at edges.
