LIMITED EDITION of 45 copies. 16mo. 6 1/4 x 4 1/2 inches. 15 pp. Title page in red and black inks with typographic ornament, ornamental chapter head; text clean, unmarked. Quarter black cloth, printed spine and top cover labels, patterned paper over boards; binding square and tight, toned, minor shelf wear. SCARCE. Very Good. This book is printed in Kennerley Open type; it was handset in the only font of type produced by the Monotype Corporation, especially for The Attic Press. James Lamar Weygand remarked about John H. Dow, founder of the Attic Press: "Out of Omaha in 1947 came John Dow, one of our most expert printer-typographers. What he did with type, ornaments and white space was original and intriguing.... But then, just as he hit his stride, he dropped from the sight of the private press fraternity, and his present location cannot be ascertained."
