Los Angeles: Dawson's Book Shop, 1968. Limited Edition. Full Vellum. One of 400 copies, unnumbered, miniature - up to 2" tall. 113 pp. Near fine. Item #17082508

The last book designed by Bruce Rogers, printed by Grabhorn-Hoyem and therefore the only miniature book done by one of the Grabhorns. This miniature book is all about miniature books and is a miniature one can actually read - a thoughtful treatise by Harry Koopman (1860-1937), a highly-regarded bookman who served as Brown University's librarian from 1893 to 1930, and an author and poet in his own right.

___DESCRIPTION: Full white vellum, navy blue decorations at the joints, navy blue lettering on the spine, miniature prior owner bookplate with Hebrew lettering, some red lettering on the title and copyright pages, a red initial capital letter on the first page of text, each page of text with a blue border; miniature in size (less than 2" tall), pagination: (i)-x, (1)-103, one of 400 copies printed.

___CONDITION: Overall near fine, with a strong, square text block, solid hinges, the interior is clean and bright, and other than the bookplate referred to above, it is entirely free of prior owner markings; there is some dustiness to the vellum and the corners are gently bumped, else fine.
