[North Hills, PA]: Bird & Bull Press, 1962. Edition limited to 310 copies printed from handset type on "Bird & Bull" handmade paper, 8vo, pp. viii, 62, ii, [2]; title page printed in black & rust decorated with press device, 1 facsimile page, & 24 reproductions of woodcuts; a fine copy in original orange cloth with gilt titling on spine and front cover. With this book, the third from the press, Henry Morris learned to print on dampened paper, noting that "when I tried [damp printing] halfway through the book I was amazed. With half the impression and half the ink, the printing was far better" (Taylor A5). The tales--The Queen of France, The Noble Knight Moringer, and The King in the Bath--originally appeared in German during the late fifteenth century, the product of an unknown printer in Erfurt.
