The art of intaglio produced on a letterpress: with a collection of twelve prints of 18th century London tradesmen's cards. [With:] Schlocker & the fishes
Newtown: Bird & Bull Press, 2010. Edition limited to 115 copies, this the bookbinder Greg Campbell's copy, Campbell-Logan Bindery, and out-of-series, but putatively copy no. 1 (see below); 8vo, pp. 33, followed by 12 intaglio plates of tradesmens' cards with descriptions of each interleaved; this copy with 1 extra intaglio plate (plate no. 13, of which only 22 impressions were made - this plate was not in the regular edition); 1 plate of a card commissioned for Bird & Bull, and 1 folding facsimile plate depicting an engraver's workshop. Bound dos-a-dos with, as issued: Schlocker & the Fishes, 2010, pp. 12, [4]; 2 full-page wood engravings by Wesley Bates, decorated initial; together 2 volumes in 1, in original quarter black morocco over gray cloth-covered boards, red morocco label on spine, publisher's slipcase and clamshell box; fine. This copy is one of twelve accompanied by one of the original copperplates used in the production of the book, in this case plate no. 10, E. Jefferys, Linnen Draper. In our opinion the copperplate which accompanies this copy is among the best of those illustrated. Indeed, in the Campbell-Morris correspondence is a letter from Morris from which we quote: "Notes on the specials are on the box with the copperplate engravings. All are diff. sizes. As discussed, charge for samples hereon - if you want a book you get the standing order discount (15%). The regular edition is $475 less 15%. If you want one of the specials it's $1000 less 15%. Should you want one you will have your pick of which engraving you like best. You can have no. 1 if you want" (Henry Morris to Greg Campbell, n.d., but Spring, 2010).
