Book Description W. Thomas Taylor, Austin, TX, 1983. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: near fine. First edition. A truly fine copy with the prospectus, protected in a publisher-provided heavy plexiglass slipcase. This copy inscribed by Wilson to Carol Cunningham, owner of Sunflower Press of Mill Valley, CA. The plexiglass slipcase does an excellent job of protecting the book. The clear slipcase shows some scuffs inevitably. This is a key bibliography for twentieth century American fine-press printing. Wilson provides detailed commentary on almost all of the books he designed as well as many delightful stories about the world of fine printing in the 1950s-1970s. Seller Inventory # 3941
