THIRTY YEARS OF BIRD & BULL A BIBLIOGRAPHY, 1958-1988.
by Heaney, Howell J.
Limited to only 300 copies; special copies purchased from Henry Morris and numbered 3 to 10 in the colophon (Leaf Book - Chalmers 190). These copies came from Henry Morris's private stock and contain "the most choice stuff". This is the last copy purchased and is numbered "8". The book contains a complete bibliographical description of all books and selected ephemera printed by and for the press plus books printed by the press for others, since 1980. There is also a short-title list of all the entries from the 1979 bibliography, making this the definitive work on this fine private press. Each entry lists the collation, reprints the colophon and in most cases has a fascinating and enlightening commentary written by Henry Morris. All the humor is there, along with thoughts and beliefs that can probably only really be appreciated by a fellow letterpress printer who feels the anxiety, frustration and total commitment that goes into a private press production! Mention must be made of the type specimen list, contained within the folder of ephemera, which must be one of the most innovative and unique type specimens ever produced. Amazingly the book itself also has tipped-in samples and facsimile pages. Henry Morris took over two years to produce this book making all his own paper, writing, hand typesetting, printing in two colors, folding, pasting, etc. It certainly is a fitting tribute to the press's 30th anniversary. It was the last book produced by the press on paper made by hand by Henry Morris. Priced separately.
