(Cheney, William M.)

A Natural History of The Typestickers of Los Angeles.

Los Angeles: Rounce & Coffin Club, 1960. Octavo. xii, 62pp. Inscribed by Cheney and by the author of the preface, H. Richard Archer. A candid recounting of the joys and pitfalls of presswork in southern California. Cheney revels in the identity of the "typesticker": a printer who fits "easily and naturally into the shop of any obscure printing office from the time of Gutenberg to the late Nineteenth Century" and who maintains a slight but significant place in twentieth-century presswork. Handwritten edits to page xi. Faint fading at edges, else near fine in quarter black cloth and near fine dust wrapper. Errata slips laid in. Item #29745

Price: $100.00
