by Duval, K. D

Condition: Fine copy

Frenich, Foss: K. D. Duval, 1975. First edition. Paperback. Fine copy. Large 8vo. Paper-bound. Pp. 68, (ii). Illustrated: 39 plates in color and 7 in black & white. Laid in: the price list and "A Brief Foreword" by William R Cagle, Acting Librarian for the Lilly Library. With an Introduction by Edgar Mansfield. The book was printed in Verona, Italy, by the Stamperia Valdonega. In the early 1970s the Scottish booksellers, Kulgin Duval and Colin Hamilton, commissioned some 24 British bookbinders to produce splendid bindings for an exhibition held at Francis Edwards, Ltd in London. The entire collection was later bought by the Lilly Library at Bloomington, Indiana. This is the catalogue that Duval and Hamilton issued before the collection was sold. It includes most interesting introductions for each of the bookbinders, who included Jeff Clements, Sydney M Cockerell, Elizabeth Greenhill, Arthur Johnson, and Edgar Mansfield. Among the books rebound were some from the Officina Bodoni, also in Verona.
