About This Item

Lunenberg, VT: The Stinehour Press, 1967. Paperback. Very Good. LIMITED EDITION of 500 copies printed as a keepsake for the Heritage of Graphic Arts lecture series in memory of Paul A. Bennett at Gallery 303. 12mo. 7 x 4 1/2 inches. [8] pp. Typographic borders in brown on pages [1], [3], and [8], short essay about Paul Bennett; text clean, unmarked. Self-wraps, stitched, colophon on page [8]; rear cover toned at gutter. Muir Dawson's copy without distinguishing marks. SFK519-060. Very Good. Paul Arthur Bennett (1897-1966) was an American typographer and author who wrote several papers, monographs, and keepsakes for The Typophiles as he guided them to become a formalized group. Philip Duschnes (1897-1970) was Bennett's contemporary and fellow Typophile, remembered for his work with fine bindings and his defense of selling individual leaves on the rare book market. This keepsake booklet brings together several key personalities in Typophile and New York fine press printing history of the 20th-century. REFERENCE: Donald C. Dickinson, Dictionary of American Antiquarian Book Dealers, p. 56.
