Barcham Green, limited, by H. Morris; part 2: Dear friend at home; letters written by Nathan Guilford on a journey to Kentucky [where he meant to establish a law practice] in 1814, with an introduction by W. Bell, Jr. The over-all title of this work is taken from the half-title-like leaf preceding the sectional title of part I; part I includes => correspondence with William Morris. The production was limited to 210 copies, printed using Baskerville types. Part 1 is printed on Jack B. "Green's hand made Royal, and 'Hayle Mill' is printed on hand made 'Bird & Bull Royal'" paper. Contained in a pocket of the dust wrappers is a sample of "the paper originally made for covering the sides of the book [but which] was found unsuitable." This is copy 152.
