First edition limited to 160 numbered copies. This important work traces the spread of marbling to Europe during the 15th century, taking into account the 11th-century Japanese suminigashi technique. It reprints in full two major 17th-century technical descriptions on marbling by Evelyn and Kircher and an account of the mid-18th-century technique by Robert Dossie. There are notes on the pigments employed by these marblers and contemporary recipes. Printed at The September Press on Zerkall Elfenbien Halbmatt paper.
