About this Item

First edition, dedicated "to those who as poets and publishers have rescued a nation's literature"; Walter Hamady, proprietor of the Perishable Press, was particularly pleased with that dedication, saying "one of my favorite pages is the dedication page, 18 point Palatino italic has a fine flow to it & the blind debossment of another geologic structure below it excites me." Like that blind-stamped illustration, his distinctive pressmark appears also in blind, at the colophon ? and => the copyright line (deliberately) appears in such a faint grey, overlying a line on the title-page recto, that its near-invisibility caused issues with filing for copyright. The text was set by hand in Palatino and Michaelangelo, and printed in black and grey on Shadwell paper; this is one of 250 copies printed. 8vo (24.5 cm, 9.7"). [16] pp.; illus. Two Decades of Hamady & the Perishable Press, 21. Publisher's tan paper wrappers, front wrapper with blind-stamped title. Minimal wear to extremities, otherwise a clean and fresh copy.
