Printed at the Stinehour Press in an edition limited to two hundred and fifty case bound copies set in Dante type. Designed by Jerry Kelly. Grolier Club catalogue of the 100 most beautiful, finely printed books produced during the 20th century arranged in chronologicial order. "The idea of one book a year, on average, seems almost presumptuous. Yet one must begin somewhere, and celebrate the chosen, rather than lament the many left unsung. This catalogue is intended to give a glimpse of how the generations of the past century have displayed knowledge and taste in rasing printing to an art." Introductory essays by the authors. With 100 full-page examples of title- pages, facsimiles, and illustrations. With a presentation from both authors on the colophon page.
