This copy further with an autograph letter and a typed letter, both signed, from Michael Taylor to the original owner and a signed autograph letter from the Whittington Press to the original owner. Including the non-deluxe issue, only 400 copies of the work were printed. With plates in both colour and black and white and with 12 finely produced tipped-in reproductions of printing examples. 4to, in the special deluxe binding of quarter Oasis morocco over paper-coved boards, the portfolio of matching paper backed in cloth. The DAISY AND MARGUERITE reproduction bound tan paper-covered boards backed in buckram as the original, all contained in the original paper and cloth covered printer's slipcase. 181pp; 23 pp; portfolio. A copy of this special issue in extremely fine condition, mint and completely as originally issued from the press. FIRST EDITION, THE MOST LIMITED AND MOST DELUXE ISSUE OF THE DEFINITIVE TEXT ON THE SAINT DOMINIC'S PRESS. Taylor and Sewell provide a most comprehensive bibliography with ample additional material and a very generous number of illustrations and sample pages. The facsimiles provided were produced by letterpress at the Whittington Press and are of far better quality then could be produced by photolithography. The portfolio specimen is an original Saint Dominic's Press printed sheet. A painstakingly produced book based on both extensive research and firsthand accounts.
