Author Name    NEWSPAPERS : Ichabod Dawks : Stanley Morison.

Title   Ichabod Dawks & His News-Letter. With an account of the Dawks Family of booksellers & stationers 1635-1731. By Stanley Morison.

Book Condition   Gilt buckram, with striking typographical dustwrappers designed by Morison and with very extensive lettering front and back. Folio, c.pp52 uncut, binding with just a slight marking or fading at one corner, the flimsy dustwrappers with a couple of tiny 'invisible' repairs, an excellent copy of a vulnerable book more often found in poor condition and without the delicate dustwrappers. With 6 tipped-in collotype facsimiles [comprising 13pp total] + 1 other plate + various facsimile illustrations in text.

Publisher    Cambridge University Press 1931.

Seller ID   1871

Scarce book. 500 copies printed by Walter Lewis who took 'extraordinary trouble with the setting of the Dawks type', a typographical invention much admired by Morison. Excellent copy, with the delicate dust wrappers, of a book more usually found in poor condition.
