AN EXHIBITION OF BOOKS ON PAPERMAKING, A SELECTION OF BOOKS FROM THE COLLECTION OF LEONARD B. SCHLOSSER.
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. Loosely inserted in this copy is a section of a book printed by Henry Morris showing "Old Watermark Designs." Scarce.
