First edition, limited to 250 numbered copies (Berger A49). Composed in Cochin types and printed on Johannot mouldmade paper. Nevins notes that 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. Prior to this publication, no literature or documentation on the origin or practice of marbling in Spain had thus far been discovered. This book is the first to concern itself exclusively with the technique of Spanish marbling. Prospectus loosely inserted.
