About this Item

Small 8vo. Wrappers. (1p). Near fine. Keepsake "protest against literary loafers" printed by the noted Stinehour Press for Williams College's Chapin Library. The single-page text is a famous lament written in 1514 by the reknowned Italian printer to his friend Navagerus, in which Aldus bemoans that "I am hampered in my work by a thousand interruptions." Charming little piece. From the private library of one who well understood Aldus's anguish: the noted social protest poet and fine press Publisher JOHN BEECHER (1904-80).
