Limited to an edition of 235 bound thus. The paper is T.H. Saunders HP, the type is Van Dijck. There are nine woodblocks and twelve lineblocks printed in the original size. Fourteen others appear in a somewhat reduced size. Six more are tipped-in, as is a photograph of Smith. Nine of the engraved blocks and fourteen of the drawn images were printed on the Albion Press. The rest of the bookplates have been printed by Smith Settle using the same paper. Although the title page shows that the book was printed in 2005, there is a slip pasted on the front endpaper stating " Bookplates by Richard Shirley Smith was begun in 2005 but was completed during 2006". This is a lovely book in fine condition.
