Printed on Zerkall mouldmade paper in an edition limited to 150 numbered copies. Composed in Garamond types by Michael and Winifred Bixler, bound by the Campbell-Logan bindery in Japanese cloth and enclosed in a cloth covered slipcase. Sixteen colored illustrations are tipped-in throughout. Henk Voorn (b. 1921), publisher and editor of De Papierwereld (The Paper World) since 1949, is well known to all those interested in papermaking history, and considered by Leonard Schlosser to be the leading paper historian of his time. The earlier letters include personal details and information concerning the planning and publication of Old Ream Wrappers (1969), the Voorns' first trip to the U.S. and the Morris' first trip to Holland and England in 1967. Subsequent letters are concerned with trips to IPH Congresses, books published Bird & Bull, and related matters of papermaking history. Scholars of paper history and the private press will find these letters informative and enjoyable. Prospectus loosely inserted.
