Description:

Oblong folio. (29)ff. One of 50 copies signed by James Trissel, the printer. Contains nine "trifolds," each a large sheet of paper folded twice, eight of them representing the canonical hours, and the ninth being the colophon. Each trifold is beautifully printed letterpress and illustrated in several colors. The deeply impressed illustrations include a plan of Stonehenge, early concepts of the universe, and Linnaeus' flower clock, all enhanced by transparent overlays, opaque overprinting, and stamped foil. The colophon is illustrated with engravings of the human brain and heart. Extremely fine, loose, as issued, in a cloth drop-back box which shows light sunning to upper panel. Bookplate.
