About this Item

7 7/8” x 11 5/7”, 102 numbered pages, and 2 paper specimens; colophon, and (4)pp. prospectus, bound in at back of book. 15 photographic illustrations, and 3 others of plants used in papermaking. Red-brown morocco leather spine with gilt title; specially block-printed oriental paper sides, and matching slipcase by Gray Parrot, Easthampton, with binder’s label in back of book. Black paper of slipcase sides shows a little rubbing with loss of some of the black surface (note: the black surface of this "mulberry" paper easily stains the fingers & can be as easily transfered to the pages of this book); some age-related tanning to some pages of text; overall, a fine copy. Scan shows the spine & part of the front cover. [Colophon:] “Here ends the monograph relating to my visits to Yen-Thai and Lang-Buoi, the ancient paper villages of Tonkin, Indo-China. The paper used in printing this edition was made in 1932 in my mill at Lime Rock, Connecticut, the only handmade paper mill in America. The title page device was printed from a woodcut found in Tonkin; the typographical ornaments used as chapter headings, as well as the borders, were cut and cast especially for this book by Dard Hunter, Junior; the woodblock used in printing the cover paper was procured in China. This edition, as well as all of the preceding books from my own press, has been bound by [Gray Parrot] Peter Franck, Sherman, Connecticut. Owing to the small amount of paper available for the printing of this book, and the limited number of specimens, only one hundred and eighty-two copies could be printed, any more than this number would have been impossible. This book is Number 177 [signed] Dard Hunter Mountain House Press, Chillicothe, Ohio, United States of America.”. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-210477997
