The de luxe reprint editions were limited to 50 and 40 sets respectively; the limitations of the original volumes vary from a low of 30 copies for Matrix I to as many as 110 copies (Printing at the Whittington Press 1972-1994 56-63). Also included are offprint indices to volumes 1-5 and 1-10, and the de luxe version of the index to volumes 1-21. Filled with important articles on all aspects of private printing, historical printing history, book illustration history and all other subjects of interest to the book arts person. Illustrated with color, tipped-in illustrations, foldouts, broadsides, samples etc. The de luxe version contains many more specimens than are present in the trade edition. Becoming very difficult to find a complete set of this very interesting periodical especially in the deluxe version. Matrix 1 reprint has a slightly faded spine. This is a remarkable set in fine condition and one of only 30 possible sets of this important work.
