4to, pp. xlii, 390, (3), and 32 plates in colour. Original cloth, slipcase, as new.
FIRST EDITION. G&M 6957. Conceived, organised, and with a introduction by Haskell Norman, this catalogue was distilled from suggestions for inclusion by collectors, booksellers, scholars and bibliographers, who also wrote the extensive descriptions. It includes bibliographical details. The most interesting copies that could be found (presentation, association, dedication, authors' copies, etc.) of each work were borrowed for the exhibition at the Grolier Club of New York in 1994. The catalogue was edited by Hope Mayo.
