About this Item

miniature book (6.3 x 4.8 cm.). stiff paper wrappers. (ii), 44, (2) pages. Limited to 400 copies, this book began as the work of Anton Bohm of Sans Souci Press, in Denver, who passed away before the project was completed. Robert E. Massman, after consultation with Bohm's widow, was able to complete the book from New Britian, CT (Bradbury, REM, 3). This tiny volume contains a memoriam to Mr. Bohm, the bibliofantasy of Bauer, and an epilogue by Massman. The story was first printed in Marburger Spiegel in 1957. Bohm gained permission to translate and publish it in English for Bohm's Literary Anecdotes. In this volume, pages 7-35 set by hand and printed by Anton Bohm on a Sigwalt 6 by 9 handpress. Title page border reduced from the handmade title page from Literary Anecdotes . All other typography by Massman; lithographed at Central Connecticut State College. Bookseller Inventory # 79317
