Reid's Leaves. A bibliography of the books from the private press of Robert R. Reid, published in Vancouver from 1949 to 1962. With commentaries by him and sample sheets from three of his books.

Vancouver: Heavenly Monkey, 2001. 11 x 15. 37 pages + 3 original double leaves. Laced with vellum tapes into heavy handmade paper wraps, blind embossed with Reid's monoram. An ALS from Milroy describes this trial binding..."more of a French wrap-- much better functionally & aesthetically than the case used for the edition." The results were inconsistent, however, so this scheme was abandoned. Fine in slipcase. Item #15764

Proof copy no. 2, signed by Reid. This unique copy contains extra specimens in an envelope at the back. Reid comments on each of his five private press books. He also writes about his years at Universities of Toronto and McGill presses, Canadian fine printing, and his production of the great Lande bibliography of Canadiana. Printed in Perpetua types on Arches paper on a Washington handpress. The total edition was 40 copies.

Price: $2,000.00
