Description:

Three folio volumes. xx, 195; xxxii, 120; xxx, 121pp. The three volumes are limited to 210, 225, and 225 copies respectively. Volume I, Bibliography of the Grabhorn Press 1915-1940, has a preface by the compilers, several short essays on the history of the Press, and reprints Frederic Goudy's essay "The Craft of the Printer." The second volume, Bibliography of the Grabhorn Press 1940-1956, has a preface by Dorothy and David Magee and an introduction by Elmer Adler. Volume III, Bibliography of the Grabhorn Press 1957-1966 & Grabhorn-Hoyem 1966-1973, has a preface by Robert D. Harlan and an introduction by Sherwood Grover. Each of the volumes presents a complete and detailed bibliography of all of the non-ephemeral productions of the presses, as well as a checklist of the same. Few private presses have produced their own bibliography, and only the Ashendene Press Bibliography is in the same class as these three impressive volumes. Volume I contains a letter from a previous owner to Robert Grabhorn requesting that the volume, bought as sheets, be bound uniform with Volume II. This was completed by Jane Grabhorn, and Volumes I and II are bound in patterned paper with red morocco spines. Both have plain wrappers and are housed in a black cloth slipcase. Volume III is in patterned cloth with a green morocco spine, and contains a prospectus laid in. Dust wrappers on Volumes I and II tanned and chipped, with some loss at edges; Volume III slightly faded at spine. Otherwise a fine set. (Chalmers 86). Bookseller Inventory #
