Book Description Sheppard., 1981. Book Condition: new. First. Hard Cover. Book- VG+. DJ- VG. 8.5x6. 221pp. Colour frontis, profuse b/w photos. Miniature books - that is books not more than 3 inches in height - have always fascinated booklovers. A good number of manuscripts still exist, but this history begins with the advent of printing. It tells their story, from the 'Officium Beatae Virginis Mariae' printed by Mathias Moravius in Naples in 1486, to modern times when new printing methods, and perhaps a growing belief that small is beautiful, have greatly increased the number of enthusiastic collectors.
