Description:

141; 129; 142pp. The Lincoln is one of 125 special edition copies printed for members of the American Institute of Graphic Arts. These scarce little tomes were initially published as an exercise of the Training Division of the Kingsport Press. Bondy makes special note of the complicated process by which they were printed, saying that "it is of interest to note the printing history of these marvels of superior miniature book production." This many-step process included setting full-sized type, photo-reducing the printed sheets, and creating zinc linecuts, which were then used to make the nickel electrotype plates from which the books were printed. The final, miniature-sized pages were folded on two very small machines specially designed by workers at the Press. The three books are bound in gilt-stamped leathers of various colors. A.e.g. Miniature bookplate of previous owner in Lincoln and Coolidge; Washington has ink inscription on front paste-down and two small stamps on front flyleaf; very faint fading to spine and note in ink on front flyleaf of Coolidge; else a fine set, hard to find together. (Bondy 144; Spielmann 103, 297, 508; Welsh 4409, 2023; see photograph, Bromer/Edison, p. 159). (7/8 by 5/8; 22x16mm). Bookseller Inventory #
