Varieties of Spanish Marbling. A handbook of Practical Instruction with twelve original marbled samples.

(N.p.): Bird & Bull Press, 1991. Octavo. 82pp. One of 250 copies. Determined to "preserve worthwhile skills and artifacts from the past," Iris Nevins has focused on the art of marbling. "Many wonderful intricate patterns fell out of use after about 1870," and Spanish marbling is among the most difficult. Each pattern is separately explained, with space for the amateur marbler's notes on his or her attempts to follow the directions. With eighteenth-century Spanish type ornaments in red. In beautiful Spanish-marbled boards backed in cloth, with leather spine label. Spine sunned, else near fine. Prospectus laid in. Item #29301

(Bird & Bull Bibliography A49).
