About this Item: Mountain House Press, 1981-1983, Chillicothe, Ohio, 1981. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: near fine. First edition. Chillicothe, Ohio: Mountain House Press, 1981-1983. First edition. Fine/near fine. 1981-83. Two volumes. 12 x 17. Frontis, (8), 198; frontis, (9), 131 pages, plus numerous inserts. Full chestnut morocco by Gray Parrot (binder's ticket at the back of each volume), ruled in black & gilt, Hunter armorial device gilt on Vol. I, Hunter watermark gilt on Vol. 2. Each volume in a cloth tray case with morocco title label. Fine. This is one of the great fine press works produced in the last century. It's oddly grand and whimsical at the same time. This is one of 50 deluxe sets (of a total 150 sets) signed by Dard Hunter II. In addition to the full leather bindings the deluxe copies were printed on a heavier stock of handmade paper and have many extras. Original paper and printing samples are found in super-abundance throughout. Vol. 1 covers Hunter's early career from 1904-11 with copious detail and illustrations from his work at the Roycroft Studios; the volume closes with a section on his stained glass creations from 1904 to 1943. There are 194 colored and 65 b&w tipped-in illustrations; most printed to resemble the originals in both paper and color, requiring hand-cut tinted blocks and in some cases watercolors to achieve the desired fidelity. Vol. 2 covers Hunter's life with paper from the Mill House in Marlborough, NY (1912) to Papermaking by Hand in America (1950). There are extensive photographs from all periods, about 50 tipped-in samples of Hunter's papers and watermarks -- many full-page, and a bibliography with samples from the original publications. Printed with a Washington handpress on handmade paper with Dard Hunter II's hand-cut and cast type. Both volumes as new, true fine in and out. Both slipcases (oatmeal colored cloth with leather spine labels) near fine, minor shelwear only, no bumps, no splits. One side of the box of Volume II looks a little dusty or very slightly soiled. A beautiful set. Seller Inventory # 3708

About this Item: Mountain House Press 1981-83, Chillicothe, Ohio, 1981. 445 x 311 mm. (17 1/2 x 12 1/4"). Two volumes. Compiled by Dard Hunter II. Nos. 11 (volume I) and 96 (volume II), OF 100 COPIES of the regular edition, SIGNED BY DARD HUNTER II (there were an additional 50 "special edition" copies in a red morocco binding). Original quite attractive chestnut brown half morocco over paper boards printed with a Roycroft pattern of pink roses and green leaves, flat spines with gilt titling, leather hinges, edges untrimmed. In the original sturdy linen clamshell boxes with tan morocco labels on spine. Volume I with 194 specimens and 65 black and white illustrations, many of these painstakingly hand-printed to resemble the paper and color from Hunter's original drawings; Volume II with 25 color and 75 black and white illustrations, 34 paper specimens, and 23 title page reproductions. Prospectus laid in at the front. In mint condition. This impressive two-volume work is the product of 13 years of labor by Dard Hunter II to record his father's extraordinary legacy. The senior Dard Hunter (1883-1966) explored the breadth of book production as few others have: he was an author, papermaker, type designer, graphic artist, and printer. He first experimented with papermaking at a mill in New York in 1909, and later in Ohio, his home state. Of the 18 books he wrote on papermaking technique, the eight he printed at his Mountain House Press, from 1922-50, stand as high points in 20th century American private press books. With the help of his son, he made and set the type for all of these books and printed them by hand on his own paper. He was the leading authority on papermaking, and his research on the subject took him many times around the globe, particularly into Asia, in order to document and collect samples of traditional papermaking techniques. His collection and research became the core of the Dard Hunter Paper museum, which opened in 1939. Equipment used in his papermaking, type founding, and printing has been accepted into the Smithsonian, while his collection of old and exotic papers resides in the Robert C. Williams Paper Museum at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta.
