About this Item

A very special book. #7 of 15 copies, very fine copy printed on japanese vellum paper bound in quarter leather, with raised bands and leather corner guards over beautifully printed boards and gilded lettering to spine, top is gilded. Signed by author Jacobi, who was the manager of the Chiswick Press. " In the course of my experience I have frequently observed a lack of that knowledge which is so essential to all who have to do with the production of books. I have endeavored in this book to give a few practical hints, avoiding technicalities as much as possible, which I hope may be of service and value to the author and to all l overs of books. O trust these short chapters may arouse some feelings of interest in the details which serve to make a good book, whether in the old-fashioned style or in the more modern form (1891). This is indeed, immaterial, so long as it is well made, and is consistent in the matter of style throughout." The Author. A fabulous 19th century collectible for the lovers of books. Flawless in nearly every way. Bookseller Inventory # 000555
