Limited to 149 copies. An address delivered before The Club of Odd Volumes, November 16, 1932. Rosamond Loring's (1889-1950) first published work on paper marbling and paste papers (cf. Wolfe, R.: Marbled Paper, its History, Techniques and Patterns pp. 132-134), originally a talk plus demonstration for the Club of Odd Volumes in Boston. Loring discusses her early work in paste papers, her somewhat haphazard introduction to marbling and subsequent instruction therein by a professional marbler, the making of marbled and paste papers, and the history of marbling. Following are five tipped-in samples of paste paper made by Loring, a sample of monochromatic combed marble paper, and samples for each of five stages in the production of three-color combed marble paper. The paste paper covers are also made by her. Spine of book showing only the slightest hint of sunning. Corners lightly rubbed. Slipcase rubbed along edges and cracked along one edge.
