The Grolier Club exhibition "Sir Thomas Phillipps: Portrait of a Collector" was curated by Harrson D. Horblit in December 1972. Horblit had a tremendous collection of books and manuscripts relating to Sir Thomas Phillips, founder of the Middle Hill Press. Though no catalogue was ever produced to accompany the exhibition, the Phillipps archive is now a part of the Grolier Club Library, and this catalogue contains the Middle Hill Press portion of the collection. The "Phillipps Room" on the fifth floor of the Grolier Club is a memorial to both Sir Thomas Phillipps and Harrison Horblit.

The Middle Hill Press material is the largest section of the collection and illustrates the history of the press, while drawing together several strands of book history. This checklist includes a frontispiece portrait of Sir Thomas Phillipps and nine illustrations. It was designed by Jerry Kelly and printed by the Stinehour Press.
