In particular, we specialize in the three great English presses of the turn-of-the-century, known collectively as "The Triple Crown". The Kelmscott Press of William Morris, St. John Hornby's Ashendene Press, and the Doves Press of T.J. Cobden-Sanderson countered mass production during the Industrial Revolution with beautiful book creations in limited editions. We recently sold the most comprehensive collection of Triple Crown material assembled by an American collector to Washington University in St. Louis. This collection included nearly every book and ephemeral item, known and unrecorded, produced by the three presses, along with related correspondence.
In every period of printing history, the masters have printed copies of special books on vellum. The Triple Crown printers revived the use of vellum for their deluxe editions and influenced other fine printers to do the same. Book collectors avidly pursue these copies for their brilliance and their clarity. Vellum printing is a specialty at Bromer Booksellers, and in 1984, we published the major book on the subject, The Mystique of Vellum, copies of which are available in the regular edition at $550.00.
