Folio (18 by 12.5 inches), unbound as issued, the sheets housed in a handsome red buckram clamshell case. 326 pp. A very fine copy, beautifully preserved. A VERY FINE COPY OF THIS IMPORTANT WORK BY DARD HUNTER, THE LAST AND MOST AMBITIOUS WORK TO COME FROM HUNTER’S PRESS. The colophon states 210 copies were produced ,but in his book, MY LIFE WITH PAPER, Hunter says it had only been possible to produce 180 of them. The book took several years of work to produce. It has a hand-coloured frontispiece, 96 facsimiles on specially made paper, 27 reproductions of early American watermarks made in exacting imitation of the originals and 42 full-size reproductions of old paper labels specially printed on paper made to emulate the original labels in the Paper Museum.
