Large quarto. (viii), 68pp. One of 100 copies, this being one of a few copies on large paper. With wood-engraved title page vignette and endpieces, and borders to every page. Sir Egerton Brydges, with John Johnson and John Warwick as printers, founded the Press, which lasted ten years and printed about fifty books in editions of under 100, to furnish "the literary collectors with reprints. in which there shall be an attempt to add beauty of typography and wood-engraving." Lee Priory is considered to be the earliest press of the private press movement. Internally a fine copy in original morocco-backed brown boards, which show moderate edgewear and strengthening to inner hinges. Bookseller Inventory #
