About This Item

New Castle, DE: Oak Knoll Books, 1990. cloth-backed boards covered with patterned paper, in facsimile of an original Remondini pattern specially executed by Henry Morris, leather spine label. Bird & Bull Press. 8vo. cloth-backed boards covered with patterned paper, in facsimile of an original Remondini pattern specially executed by Henry Morris, leather spine label. 55, (5) pages. A first edition limited to 215 numbered copies. A fine copy with prospectus loosely inserted. Remondini and Rizzi is set in Perpetua and printed by letterpress on Johannot mouldmade paper by Henry Morris at the Bird & Bull Press (Berger B36). Italian block-printed papers were the start of the collection of decorated papers that Tanya Schmoller and her husband Hans gathered together for over twenty years. The use of woodblocks to transfer designs to cloth and paper can be traced back in Europe to the fourteenth century. In the region of what is now Italy there were several firms supplying these colorful papers, the most eminent of which was Remondini, established in 1650. This work traces the history of the Remondini enterprise and later the Giuseppe Rizzi enterprise, which took over the Remondini woodblocks after 1861. It examines the sales techniques and production methods of these two firms and contains actual specimens of Rizzi decorated paper. Such samples are rarely found today and they are usually very expensive. The illustrations include a three-color facsimile of a Remondini woodblock and a fold-out reproduction of a decree authorizing the sale of gilt paper. Also included are four pages of genuine Rizzi paper samples.

About Oak Knoll Books/Oak Knoll Press

Oak Knoll Books was founded in 1976 by Bob Fleck, a chemical engineer by training, who let his hobby get the best of him. Somehow making oil refineries more efficient using mathematics and computers paled in comparison to the joy of handling books. Oak Knoll Press, the second part of the business, was established in 1978 as a logical extension of Oak Knoll Books. Oak Knoll Books is a thriving company that maintains an inventory of about 20,000 titles. Our main specialties are books about bibliography, book collecting, book design, book illustration, book selling, bookbinding, bookplates, children's books, Delaware books, fine press books, forgery, graphic arts, libraries, literary criticism, marbling, papermaking, printing history, publishing, typography & type specimens, and writing & calligraphy - plus books about the history of all of these fields.
