About this Item

30pp. From an edition of thirty-five deluxe copies printed at the Bird & Bull Press and signed by Henry Morris, this is a publisher's copy. The deluxe copies include an extra leaf tipped in titled "The Remedy for Micro-Typographia," which includes a version of the Lord's Prayer in Dutch printed from a single piece of engraved, 10-point Didot type. Each letter of the Prayer is a mere 0.145mm high. The only miniature printed at Bird & Bull, and the first time that a Bird & Bull checklist appeared in print. Very fine in a deluxe binding by Gray Parrot, of gilt-stamped black morocco with an onlaid "V" in gray. The endpapers are purple paste-paper made by Henry Morris. (Bromer/Edison, p. 49; Bromer, pp. 20-27). (2 3/8 by 1 7/8; 60x47mm). Bookseller Inventory # 25272
