Description

Juror Notes

This is a perfect example of the catalogue of a “special-subject” rare book collection. There is not a blatant page in the book, nor is there an undistinguished one. The text is thoughtfully planned and printed on a page of normal and convenient size; the gravure plates have richness and clarity; the binding s neat, sturdy, and not without its blithe touch in the Riley characters along the backbone.

Peter Beilenson, Paul McPharlin, Ernst Reichl (Jurors)
