(Bird & Bull Press)

Five on Paper.

(North Hills): Bird & Bull Press, 1963. Octavo. 59pp. One of 169 copies. A collection of five essays on hand papermaking, with contributions by Dard Hunter, J. Barcham Green, John Mason, Henry Morris and Norman H. Strouse. Six wood-engravings and many amusing drawings illustrate the process of hand papermaking. This is Morris's second book about paper, and only the third to be published under the Bird & Bull imprint. In his bibliography of Bird & Bull, Morris notes that he went about making the paper for the book the wrong way, so it browned rapidly. This copy shows browning at edges of pages from the high acidity, but is otherwise fine, in full brown morocco with gilt-titling. Item #30479

(Taylor A4).
