THE PRIVATE PRESS.
Second edition, revised and enlarged. This work is more than a chronicle for antiquarians, bibliophiles, collectors, historians, and printing enthusiasts. Roderick Cave transcends a factual documentation of private press activities and brings to a full-bodied text the personal observations and insights of a 25-year involvement with the private press phenomenon. This selective history spans the private press movement from the origin of printing to the most contemporary private presses. In this edition, Cave has revised the original from 1971 and has added a new chapter on private press printing in the United States and Great Britain from 1970 to 1983 and on private press activity in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
