(Miniature Book)

Printing on Vellum.

Shaker Heights, OH: Wind & Harlot Press, 1992. (14)ff. One of twenty-three copies. Tasteful reprinting of the two letters exchanged between D.B. Updike of the Merrymount Press and Charles St. John Hornby of the Ashendene Press in 1930. Updike was in the process of printing the Book of Common Prayer on vellum and encountered issues of sheet shrinkage and lining up registration for two-color printing. He sought advice from Hornby, who suggested that the issue may have been the result of the dry atmosphere and he offered suggestions on registration. Bookplate of prominent miniature book collector Rabbi Kalman Levitan on front paste-down. A fine copy in publisher's light brown paper over boards, with printed spine label. (Bradbury, p. 324). (2 1/4 by 1 15/16; 58x50mm). Item #31203
