Editor's Note: "The specimens in this book have been selected not so much to represent every publisher, printer and illustrator of distinction in each country, but rather to endeavour (within a necessarily limited compass) to indicate the general trend of the design of the printed book in Europe and the United States to-day. The name of the book, author, printer, publisher and artist (when not described on the illustration itself) is given at the foot of each specimen. The particular type is indicated wherever possible in the 'List of Illustrations' at the beginning of the book." With an Introduction by Aldous Huxley. Small dent in spine causing a break in cloth just below spine label. Light wear to cloth at top and bottom of spine, edges of boards sunned, corners scuffed. Name on endpaper. Text unmarked.
