(52) pp. Printed throughout in red and black, title page with printer's device in red on title page, lots of examples of decorative initials in red, errata slip bound in at the rear; text clean, unmarked, light toning to edges and end-papers. Marbled paper over boards, printed paper label on front cover; binding square and tight, lower edge well-worn, 2-inch chip in spine (where a spine label had been?). 2 pieces of ephemera laid in: 1) a sample of Pannekoek laid paper printed on one side noting J. Bachtold, Paris as the French agent for Pannekoek, and 2) a typed letter signed on J. Bachtold, Export and Import Paper Merchant, Paris, dated 18 March 1927 discussing the terms of supplying Pannekoek paper to Monsieur Joncquiere of Paris. Ownership signature and book seller notations on front free end-paper. Very Good. This is an outstanding specimen book of fifteenth-century black letter types and gothic initials available at Joh. Enschede en Zonen, Harleem, printed on laid Holland Pannekoek paper. Even the marbled paper on the boards is quite lovely.
