Very Good. The text contains an appeal for peace by the President of the Swiss Gutenberg Museum on the eve of World War II. Apparently the first miniature book issued by Norman Forgue. See Bradbury, p. 19 for an account of Norman Forgue's bad memory when it came to dating his miniature books. At one point Forgue believed that Averill, Judge Not a Book by its Cover (1938) to have been the first miniature issued by the Black Cat Press. REFERENCE: Bradbury, 20th Cent. US Miniature Books, No. 1277.
