Book Description Bayberry Hill Press, Meriden, CT, 1966. Hardcover. Condition: Good. Limited Edition. No. 125 of "about" 125 printed copies. vii, 25 p. 30 cm. B&w title page illustration. Hardcover in glassene dustjacket inside black slipcase. Bottom corners a little worn, jacket a bit frayed, and box broken. Inside the pages are clean and text remains unmarked. This collectable book recounts the authors' return to Hammersmith, the location of Morris's Kelmscott Manor and considers his important role in the Revival of Printing and fine press movements of the late-19th century. Printed in the Bookman typeface because of its similar appearance to Morris's own Golden typeface, the book also presents reproductions of the Doves, Golden, Troy, and Ashedene Ptolomy types. A lovely and nostalgic work for bibliofiles interested in the history of typography. Seller Inventory # 2039
