View all copies of this ISBN edition:

One American press in particular, because of certain unique characteristics, is comparable to no other of any time or place. A more comprehensive "expression of a personal ideal conceived in freedom and maintained in independence," could not be devised, for the books produced by Dard Hunter . . . are the result of his own labor in every detail. By turns he is paper maker, type designer, punch cutter, founder, author, illustrator, compositor, ink maker, printer, and binder. Upon the finished book no other hand or thought than his has been expressed, and it stands as a symbol of the ideal he has maintained for many years, the revival of pure, unaided, individual art and craftsmanship. With the passing of time Dard Hunter's major interest has centered on papermaking. He has assembled a comprehensive library on the subject, together with innumerable specimens of papers from all times and places and has travelled widely after data.
