Large 4to, orig. black morocco-backed marbled boards, spine lettered in gilt. North Hills: Bird & Bull Press, 1980. Limited to 300 numbered copies printed on Green's handmade B&B paper. This manual, by one of the great German marblers and teachers, was originally published in 1940. It is an excellent overall study of the craft and contains the most detailed and comprehensive text written on the fantasy type of marbling. It also includes a discussion of "overmarbling" paper. The bulk of the first edition was destroyed by Allied bombing and, hence, very difficult to find. Fine copy. . (Inventory #: HillBibl-5099)
