About this Item

LIMITED EDITION of 400 copies (only 100 copies bound). Miniature Book. 1 3/8 x 1 1/8 inches. [60] pp. Printed in gold and black throughout, this is an ABC book with a letter in gold, short text, and an illustration on the opposite page; text clean, unmarked. Gilt-stamped full mustard-yellow leather, all edges gilt, marbled end-papers; binding square and tight. SCARCE. Very Good. Averill's ABC book of proberbs was first printed by Norman Forgue at the Black Cat Press in 1938. Most of the copies of the first edition were lost to water damage. Forgue printed this Second Edition in 1963, reproducing the original illustrations and the proverbs, from an earlier age that was soon disappearing with the new sensibilities of the 1960s. It is one of the smallest and now most desireable of Black Cat Press productions. Bradbury, 20th Century US Miniature Books, No. 241. Bookseller Inventory # II41615-2
