About this Item

First Edition. Heller & MaGee state: "Bound in green wrappers.some copies in terra-cotta boards. 250 copies printed for complimentary distribution in September 1921. First and last of 'The Printing Press' series." (p. 19) However, I believe this to be #5 of the series. Furthermore, although this is a paperback, it is "grocery bag brown" paper-covered boards (attached at spine & flaps--under endpapers--but free over boards.) White label "The Printing Press of Edwin & Robert Grabhorn" on front cover. Toning to front endpapers from bookmark or newspaper clipping (2" x 6.5"). Short tear to paper on bottom edge of front panel. Overall VG to near fine. Scarce in any binding, especially this uncatalogued one. Grabhorn #30. Magee's catalog of 1960 describes this as "very rare.". Bookseller Inventory # mon0000113233
