Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"The selection of papers for this volume ranges over forty years of Cave's writing, and draw on his archival research in several countries. The book starts with articles surveying the broad field from an historical or marketing perspective, and includes several studies based on interviews with those who were working at the Boars Head, Gregynog and Golden Cockerel Presses in the years between the world wars. Other articles on individual presses range from those of a French schoolboy in the 1790s, through modern American, Australian and British private presses, to that operated by the remarkable Count Potocki de Montalk, who claimed to be Wladislas V, King of Poland. The volume also includes articles on a Victorian book collectors' club, the Philobiblon Society, and on high quality commercial printing at the Folio Society and the Grey Wall Press."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
