Oblong Miniature Book. 2 5/16 x 2 15/16 inches. [vi], (14) pp. Half-title, "Ode to the Ampersand" by Barbara J. Dolliver, short text extolling the logogram, illustrated with a variety of ampersands in various fonts and colors; text clean, unmarked. Printed paper over boards with a variety of amersands, comes with the original printed paper band that wraps around the entire volume (kind of a hybrid between a dust-jacket and a slip case) that is open to the top and bottom; binding square and tight. SIGNED by the author on the colophon. Fine. The text provides a brief history and meaning of the device. Lovely!
