Order Nr. 120161

Limited to 400 copies (Bradbury, MBS 1). Printed at the Tabula Rasa Press. Edited with a Preface by Francis J. Weber. Louis Bondy was born in Berlin and trained first as an architect and then as a journalist before settling in London. After World War II, he turned to the book trade. He operated a bookshop and became internationally known for his expertise on miniature books, writing articles and also what is considered the "'bible' of miniature bookdom." Bondy considers miniature books "tangible manifestations of the infinite variety of human skills, sharpened and refined by the exigencies of their format." This diminutive book records a speech delivered to the Grand Conclave III in 1985.
