New Aspects of John and William Hunter

New Aspects of John and William Hunter

Fred Anthoensen, Portland, Maine, 1946

Description

Juror Notes

This handy small octavo has many virtues. The color and texture of the paper are more than usually pleasant in this year when good paper has been hard to find. Only the use of a paper label pasted on the front cover where the title might better have been stamped detracts from an otherwise excellent effect.
