The Charles Whittinghams Printers.

NY: Grolier Club, 1896. 7 x 10. vi, 344 pages. With the separately issued (in 1898) Index (pages 345-353). Illustrated throughout with wood engravings, borders, initial letters, and decorative material. Green morocco spine and corners. Slight wear & discoloration to the binding, but a very good or better copy without the slipcase. Cortlandt Bishop's copy with his blue leather exlibris. Item #891

A very useful book, made more so by the presence of the Index. One of 385 copies on handmade paper, printed by De Vinne. The Index, sent to Subscribers much later, was printed by the Chiswick Press. Laid in is a note from The Committee on Publications sending the Index. Part I is a history of the Whittinghams & the Chiswick Press. Part II deals in detail with "technicalities"--shop conditions, printing practices, borders, woodcuts, decorative material, presses, inks.

Price: $500.00
