First edition, limited to 250 numbered copies; this copy has "K" in place of a number (Berger A49). Composed in Cochin types and printed on Johannot mouldmade paper. Of all the marbled patterns, the Spanish is the most difficult to achieve. This book contains detailed instructions for making twelve different patterns, as well as original 5 x 8 inch specimens. No literature or documentation on the origin or practice of marbling in Spain has thus far been discovered. This book is the first to concern itself exclusively with the technique of Spanish marbling. The first two leaves have roman numerals written in ink in the corners of the pages. Inner hinges tape strengthened.
