New York: Stevens-Nelson Paper Corp, 1950. half leather over decorated boards. Paper Specimens. 4to. half leather over decorated boards. With 106 (of 107) specimen sheets, many printed in color and some colored stock. One of the finest of the paper specimen books. With designs by Rogers, Mardersteig, Van Krimpen, and others. Each section was printed by a different printer including such presses as Anthoensen, Lakeside, Curwen, and many of the famous foreign presses. This copy has stamps of the Carpenter Paper Company on the front and back pastedowns and back endpaper and has two labels mounted on the front cover. The first specimen is lacking. That is the specimen that contains the presentation page so a former owner must have wanted that removed. There are also staples on the front free endpaper. Some of the leaves have tape marks along the edge.
