Private Press Prospectuses, 2001

1 of 50 copies in half-leather.

David Butcher sums up the history of British private presses from Kelmscott to the end of the twentieth century through the prospectuses and catalogues designed to tempt the collector to subscribe. These are often beautifully designed and illustrated and printed on exotic papers; sometimes the books were fated never to appear and remain merely as ‘ghosts’, recorded only in the prospectuses.

One of 50 copies half-bound in Oasis leather and issued with a separate portfolio of original prospectuses.
