This copy contains the separate air-mail letter, not laid in as issued (see below), from Theodore Bacchus, the Department of State, Republic of San Serriffe, as well as the pane of 4 San Serriffe stamps, and the original prospectus. Forty-Four A65. Says Sid Berger of the separate envelope and letter: "The bound book came in a slipcase which was then wrapped in white paper (still around my copy). The envelope with the extra pane of stamps came through the U.S. post! On a phone call with Henry, I learned that he wanted to know if his San Seriffe stamps would work in the U.S. post. He said that at worst the envelopes he sent would be trashed. He mailed them to himself (as the address on the envelope indicates: "To: An American friend / c/o Bird & Bull Press / 2 Jericho Mountain Road / Newtown Pa., USA 18940." When he got it, he was delighted to have skunked the feds, and he sent that envelope to his subscribers in the same box as he mailed the slip-cased book. The envelope with the letter and extra pane of stamps was not meant to be part of the boxed volume. It was a separate thing altogether. They came as a package, but clearly the envelope was not meant to fit into the box."

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 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.
Newtown, Pa. Bird & Bull Press, 1998.

The majority of the text is comprised of a synopsis of The Life Work of Dard Hunter, with annotations, with a foreword and introduction by Henry Morris and Dard Hunter II respectively. Only 130 copies of the original two volume Life Work were printed, and this book, with its many samples, illustrations, and an expanded view of both father and son, improves much on the relatively little amount of information available on two important men in the history of papermaking. Forty-Four A61.

This copy is one of twelve accompanied by one of the original copperplates used in the production of the book, in this case plate no. 10, E. Jefferys, Linnen Draper. In our opinion the copperplate which accompanies this copy is among the best of those illustrated. Indeed, in the Campbell-Morris correspondence is a letter from Morris from which we quote: "Notes on the specials are on the box with the copperplate engravings. All are diff. sizes. As discussed, charge for samples hereon - if you want a book you get the standing order discount (15%). The regular edition is $475 less 15%. If you want one of the specials it's $1000 less 15%. Should you want one you will have your pick of which engraving you like best. You can have no. 1 if you want" (Henry Morris to Greg Campbell, n.d., but Spring, 2010).
