The Making of Books
(Lime Rock, CT: Lime Rock Press, 1987). Four volumes. Unpaginated. One of 50 numbered copies printed by Dard Hunter, Jr. at the Mountain House Press. The text, written in 1915, is reprinted from the quarterly published by Alfred Fowler entitled The Miscellany, Volume II, No. 1. It was written by Dard Hunter and comprises his initial compilation on the subject of making books by hand. The first miniature volume contains the essay "The Lost Art of Making Books"; the second "Ancient Paper-Making"; the third "Seventeenth Century Type-Making"; and the fourth contains thirteen paper samples folded into twenty-six pages. Bound by Gray Parrot in tan morocco, gilt-titled. The foreword by Dard Hunter, Jr. indicates that the paper on which the books are printed is very likely the last papers to be made in Hunter's mill. A very handsome set housed in a matching morocco slipcase, which is slightly lighter in color than the books. (1 7/8 by 1 5/16; 48x33mm).
