Ingmire, Thomas (illus.)

San Francisco: Arion Press, 1987. Printed in the very readable Deepdene type designed by Frederic Goudy and handset on handmade Twinrocker paper, the initial letters drawn and illuminated in red and blue with gold stars by calligrapher Thomas Ingmire. With a preface by Chief Justice Warren E. Burger and an Introduction by the former Librarian of Congress Daniel J. Boorstin. Very fine in full limp vellum with red-dyed vellum ribbons woven through the covers to create red stripes, the titling and stars in blue. An exemplary copy of an elegant publication—one of the more desirable productions of the Press.

Octavo. 63pp. One of 500 copies. Together with a broadside publication announcement, a photocopy of a San Francisco Chronicle article about the book, and the subscriber letter from Andrew Hoyem. Housed in a cloth chemise and matching slipcase, still retaining its original printed glassine wrapping. Item #31194

(Arion Bibliography 21).
