First Edition. large quarto, cloth in dust jacket. xvi, 536pp. Oak Knoll Press, Item #33076

"A Comprehensive Bibliography & Source Guide to The Mosher Books Reflecting England's National Literature & Design." With an Introduction by William E. Fredeman. From the dust jacket: "This exhaustive study not only provides abundant new primary research, including new evidence on royalties paid, but also presents its contents in a novel way. An overview with tables and graphs and a set of highly useful appendices neatly cross- reference with the primary bibliography, now newly augmented with two checklists of publications by Mosher's 'successors'. The opening section is particularly useful in clearly presenting the various series, privately printed books, and books printed on vellum. The full color illustrated section on bindings adds yet another dimension showing the respect Mosher' s imprints command. Acclaims and criticisms of Mosher's publishing balance the record. A descriptive index, and an annotated and cross-referenced bibliography on Mosher himself, round out this work's strengths." Presentation copy inscribed and signed by Bishop. Minor scuffing at corners of jacket, else a fine copy.
