Newtown: Bird & Bull Press, 2002. Edition limited to 150 copies, this the bookbinder Greg Campbell's copy, Campbell-Logan Bindery, and out of series; folio, pp. 99, [3]; numerous tip-ins and sample pages; original quarter brown Niger over green cloth, green morocco label on spine; accompanied by a separate portfolio containing two score other samples of text and illustration, ephemera, etc. emanating from the Bird & Bull Press (including a number of multiple-page gatherings, and an entire separate folder containing material from the Bird & Bull Dard Hunter book); together in a green cloth clamshell box, brown morocco label on spine; fine. The separate portfolio here is unique: all the material is in a manila file folder on which Henry Morris has scrawled a long letter to Greg Campbell: "Greg - This is a sample set of material that will go in a cloth-covered folder ... I think the overall size will be the same (or close) to the bound book. If so, no problem..,.This outside wrapper won't be included. It's is only to keep the set intact...There was a lot of great stuff left over from the Dard Hunter book - much of it saleable..." There are also three or four other notes from Morris to Greg Campbell laid in, mostly regarding specifications, sewing, and labeling. Item #50429
