(Smallest Book)

Holy Bible. King James Version.

Tokyo: Toppan Printing Co., (1965). This set includes two versions of the first chapter of the Book of Genesis: a micro-miniature book measuring 3/4 of an inch square and an ultra-micro-miniature measuring 4mm square. The micro-miniature contains 29 pages of text, including an explanation of the production of the accompanying ultra-micro-miniature. This miniscule marvel of printing was published at the time of the New York World's Fair using a new process called "microprinting." The microscopic volume is bound in red gilt-stamped leather covers with a gold cross on the front. The larger miniature is bound in red paper wrappers. Both are housed within a sliding plastic drawer inside a red plastic case. The case fits into an embossed red leather bag. A fine set. Item #30187
