Dard Hunter. Miscellaneous Thoughts and Reflections
New Britain, CT: Massmann, Robert, 1984. Two volumes. (20); (8)ff. One of 100 copies printed, designed, entirely constructed, and signed by Robert E. Massmann. Volume one is in the shape of the front of Dard Hunter's Lime Rock paper mill. Volume two, which contains paper samples, is bound as a disc with half-round pages opening two ways. The text was printed separately, then cut out and mounted on the leaves. Both volumes are housed in a sculptured construction of the paper mill, a handpainted cardboard model complete with chimney, mansard roof, landscaping, and front gate. According to Massmann, the papers used in the book and the imaginative paper mill slipcase are from the unfinished, last lot produced at Dard Hunter's Lime Rock Mill. This ingenious artist's book is in very fine condition. (Bromer/Edison pp.40-42). (Volume I: 2 3/8 by 2 1/8, 60x53mm; volume II: 2 1/8, 55mm. diameter).
