Quarto, gilt-stamped faux-vellum boards, publisher¿s clear mylar protective jacket and protective board chemise. Signed and dated 1966, numbered 142.

The book is signed by John Mason, and numbered 142, of an edition of no more than 200. This particular copy was issued with five additional items, as described below. Mason was active in the 1960s, right before a major revival of hand papermaking in Western art in the Seventies and Eighties. Mason¿s colophon for another book comments that there were a handful of hand papermaking studios in England at the time. The practice of this craft is now widespread, with established organizations such as the International Association of Hand Papermakers and Paper Artists. Mason notes on an introductory page that "at the end of this copy I have added five extra interesting items." These are: * Introductory leaves of his first sample book, published by Maggs in 1959; Menu upon his 1958 election as a member of the Double Crown Club; Twelve by Eight Press contribution to Typophile Memorial Keepsake to Paul A. Bennett; Original sketch of trees, pen and ink by Rigby Graham; Specimen page from booklet on papermaking produced at Leicester College of Art by Douglas Martin.

Store Description

George Glazer opened his art and antiques gallery in 1993, and since the beginning the emphasis has been on the themes of exploration and discovery as embodied by globes, prints, maps and art. The gallery's unusual ambiance reflects its owner -- scholarly and intellectual, but with an eye for the decorative and a sense of humor that revels in the offbeat. Featured items include: Antique World Globes -- huge selection; floor and table, terrestrial and celestial, orrerys and armillary spheres. Maps - - 19th C. American maps and atlases; celestial charts. Prints and Paintings -- botanical, bird, sporting, maritime, fashion and costume, architectural and horses. Books -- leather and colorplate.
