Bibliography of the Grabhorn Press 1915-1940; Bibliography of the Grabhorn Press 1940-1956; Bibliography of the Grabhorn Press 1957-1966 & Grabhorn-Hoyem 1966-1973
San Francisco: Grabhorn Press, 1940; 1957; 1977. Three folio volumes. xx, 195; xxxii, 120; xxx, 121pp. The three volumes are limited to 210, 225, and 225 copies respectively. Volume I has a preface by the compilers, several short essays on the history of the Press, and reprints Frederic Goudy's essay "The Craft of the Printer." Volume II has a preface by Magee and an introduction by Elmer Adler. Volume III has a preface by Harlan and an introduction by Sherwood Grover. Each of the volumes presents a complete and detailed bibliography of all of the non-ephemeral productions of the presses, as well as a checklist of the same. Few private presses have produced their own bibliography, and only the Ashendene Press Bibliography is in the same class as these three impressive volumes. Volume I contains a letter from a previous owner to Robert Grabhorn requesting that the volume, bought as sheets, be bound uniform with Volume II. This was completed by Jane Grabhorn, and Volumes I and II are bound in patterned paper with red morocco spines. Both have plain wrappers and are housed in a black cloth slipcase. Volume III is in paterned cloth with a green morocco spine, and contains a prospectus laid in. Dust wrappers on Volumes I and II tanned and chipped, with some loss at edges; Volume III slightly faded at spine. Othewise the set is in fine condition.
