Description du livre Allen Press, [Kentfield, CA], 1968. Mallette Dean (illustrateur). Folio. Broadside keepsake printed for the Roxburge Club of San Francisco in an unknown limitation; 8.5" x 12.5" tipped into a brown double folded wrapper, as issued. A reprinting of Cobden-Sanderson's essay which was the first issue of the Dove Press, 1900 in an addition of 25--now scarcely seen on the market. The Allen Press reprinting has a large hand-colored initial by Mallette Dean recalling the opening of initial of the Doves Press Bible. The printing is in its own right, uncommon; only three copies located in OCLC. Right margin with a very slight curl where the broadside is nestled closely into the fold of the wrapper.
