PRINTING OF TO-DAY, AN ILLUSTRATED SURVEY OF POST-WAR TYP...
by Simon, Oliver and Julius Rodenberg
First edition, one of the 300 numbered copies to be printed at the Curwen Press on hand-made paper and containing a hand-printed page from the edition de luxe of Zola's Nana, with an original etching by Chas. Laborde. The facsimiles are often in two colors. With original prospectus loosely inserted. An excellent survey of the design of the printed book in England, America and Europe with contributions by Oliver Simon, Paul Beaujon and Julius Rodenberg. The Editor's note states: "The specimens in this book have been selected not so much to represent every publisher, printer and illustrator of distinction in each country, but rather to endeavour to indicate the general trend of the design of the printed book in Europe and the United States to-day". Some age darkening of creme colored cloth on spine.
