About This Item

NY: Pynson Printers, 1936. One of 370 copies printed on Shogun paper and signed by the author and the publisher. Dard Hunter was granted access to even the most obscure papermaking locations, being one of the first foreigners many of the mills had ever encountered. This placed him on the forefront of the discovery of this otherwise esoteric and secretive world. He was permitted to take photographs, which many of his subjects willingly posed for, and 65 of these are illustrated in this book. Also contains 50 specimens of modern Japanese, Korean, and Chinese papers, an exhaustive list of papers and their origins, and a bibliography. Aside from being a beautiful and well printed volume, this book represents an insightful and historic undertaking to mark the cultural differences of papermaking between East and West. Quarto. 150pp., with 50 specimens tipped-in at the end. Bound in quarter black morocco and patterned boards. Some rubbing to extremities, spine toned, else a near fine copy lacking slipcase.
