About this Item

A curious and complicated volume from the => Bird & Bull Press. It is divided into two parts, each independent in almost every way of the other and each with a very formal sectional title: Part 1: A visit to => Hayle Mill [an English firm making fine artists' papers from 1808 to 1987], written from notes made during a visit to J. 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 Contained in a pocket of the dust wrappers is a sample of "the paper originally made for covering the sides of the book [but which] was found unsuitable."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. Provenance: Though without indicia, from Andrew Hedden?s collection of press books and livres d'artiste. 8vo (24.5 cm; 9.625"). [1] f., 88 pp., [2] ff. (two leaves not counted in pagination), 4 facsims. tipped-in (part fold.), illus, port. Taylor & Morris, Twenty-one Years of Bird & Bull, A9. Publisher's quarter cranberry-colored calf with decorated paper over the boards, in a cream-colored paper wrapper. A fine copy. Bookseller Inventory # 30522
