Book Description San Serriffe Publishing Company / Bird & Bull Press, North Hills, Penna, 1980. Hardcover. Tan & decorated paper boards with tan cloth spine, 44 pp., 2 BW illus. tipped in. Fooled ya! "San Serriffe" is a made-up island country found in the Indian Ocean and created by the Guardian newspaper in Great Britain for April Fool's Day in 1977. Publisher Henry Morris printed several books "based" on entities operating in San Serriffe. This is the second, after "The World's Worst Marbled Papers." This volume includes selected title pages and peeks into some classics published by these ficticious presses, including a few verses of Poe's "The Raven" printed backward. Tucked inside are a mock-up wanted poster (from Port Clarendon, San Serriffe; Claude Garamondo, Chief of Police.) of "author" Theodore Bachaus, as well as the one-page country info sheet created by the Guardian. A lot of fun, all around. Marked #1 of 350 copies . but then again, ALL 350 copies were labeled as such. FYI, the capital of San Serriffe is Bodoni. This book is a font of humour! VG (Slight foxing along book block edges; otherwise all surfaces clean.). Bookseller Inventory # 145133
