THE OFFICINA BODONI: AN ACCOUNT OF THE WORK OF A HAND PRESS, 1923-1977.

(Verona: Edizioni Valdonega, 1980). 311 x 216 mm. (12 1/4 x 8 1/2"). 4 p.l. (including initial blank), ix-lix, 285, [1] pp., [1] leaf (colophon).Translated and edited by Hans Schmoller. FIRST EDITION. One of 1,500 copies (99 of which came with a second volume containing printed samples from the press, and 26 of which were not for sale).

Original beige buckram, smooth spine with maroon title label. In a later maroon buckram slipcase. Frontispiece portrait, many illustrations. Slight bump to head of spine, a little inconsequential wrinkling to upper gutter corner of leaves, but a near-fine copy with no other signs of wear, inside or out.

This is the definitive survey and bibliography of Mardersteig's private press production, and like everything the book describes, this volume itself represents materials of the highest quality and irreproachable workmanship.
