Book Description David R. Godine / The Merrion Press, Boston and London, 2004. Hardcover. First American edition. 200pp. Oblong quarto [22 cm x 28.5 cm] 1/4 dark red cloth with tan paper covered boards, a gilt stamped title on the spine, and a gilt stamped vignette on the front cover. The book is in fine condition. The dust jacket is in very good condition. Very minor creasing to the edges. There is a short closed tear in the top edge. From the dust jacket- "Printing was the most widespread, and the most competitive, business of nineteenth-century America. Every city had not only its big presses for printing catalogues, books, and newspapers but also countless smaller operations for printing small jobs- the pamphlets, posters, handbills, stationary, cards, and tickets that gave the century and the businesses that took root so much of their color. Indeed several of the names we now count as giants of the publishing industry- F. N. Doubleday, Henry Houghton and George Mifflin, Donald Brace of Harcourt Brace, even the legendary Alfred A. Knopf- began their careers in manufacturing or as printers, and they were all familiar with the specialized presses described in this ambitious study.". Seller Inventory # 34020
