(Bird & Bull Press)
The Bird & Bull Commonplace Book.
North Hills: Bird & Bull Press, 1971. Quarto. 67pp. One of 255 copies. Contains some amusing essays on paper-making, and some paper samples, including two made "with the cooperation of certain local wasps." A brief history of printing gives credit to "a man named Gutenberg, probably a foreigner," who "wanted to make a good impression." A pocket inside the cover holds an unusual piece of Americana (a circular brass whorehouse check). Very fine in quarter-cloth and marbled boards. Slipcase, which is toned at edges. Item #29429
(Bird & Bull Bibliography A10).
