Newtown: Bird & Bull Press, 2001. Edition limited 170 copies, this the bookbinder Greg Campbell's copy, Campbell-Logan Bindery, and out-of-series; pp. 197, [7]; illustrations, facsimiles, photos, and samples tipped in; original quarter morocco, leather spine label, Japanese cloth over boards, cover stamped in gilt; prospectus laid in. In a cloth covered clamshell box with leather spine label. Fine. The gilt Japanese titling on the upper cover has been stamped upside down. Sid Berger called us a day or two after we'd catalogued this book and gave us the story. The entire edition was bound with the Japanese text on the cover upside down. When Morris received the book he was, shall we say, disturbed, and sent the entire edition back to Campbell-Logan where the book was stripped of its cloth cover and the error corrected. Berger tells me that only 3 of the edition still have the original binding with the upside down text: his, Henry Morris's, and this copy from the chastened binder. The first 4-volume set of Tindale's Handmade Papers of Japan is one of the finest books on Japanese papermaking published. This edition expands the text and includes a number of full page illustrations, color photographs, and 7 paper samples tipped in. Forty-Four A66. Item #50435
