CONSERVATORY FOR MY PROSPECTUSES AND SPECIMEN LEAVES
by Morris, Henry
Limited to only 100 numbered copies and out of print upon publication. This book combines Henry's brief descriptions of the books that he has published over 50 years complemented by bound-in examples of original prospectuses and leaves in Henry Morris's possession. Included are many scarce early prospectuses, of which he had kept a small hoard. There are 36 pages of brief commentaries on the books, facsimiles of relevant letters plus leaves from books which will be unknown to Morris's subscribers. The 46 inserts are bound-in and not removable, thus providing a permanent record of the progression and variety of works produced over a fifty-year period. As the inserts are so varied and quantities limited, no two copies are alike. This book is a perfect example of the value of doing leaf books as it demonstrates the progression of the Bird & Bull Press through actual examples of its work through 50 years. The prospectus for the present volume is loosely laid-in. We are offering this book at its publication price for a period of time even though it is now out of print.
