Newtown, PA: Bird & Bull Press, 1992. Edition limited to 138 copies, this, the bookbinder Greg Campbell's copy, Campbell-Logan Bindery, and out-of-series; tall 4to, pp. 40, [28]; title page printed in red and black, 19 full-page facsimiles of woodcuts, with 1 original sheet laid into a pocket of clear mylar; original brown oasis goat-backed paper-covered boards, leather spine label; fine. The Rerum was the first English book printed on paper made in England, and the leaf provided comes from a defective copy of the original edition circa 1495. The production of this leaf book was a six-year affair and brought in half a dozen potential contributors before finally going to print. The result is, in Henry Morris' own words, "the most important work I could ever hope to produce in the field of papermaking history." Forty-Four A53; Disbound and Dispersed 200. Item #50431
