I am very proud to be the first recipient (within the MBSlist) of message
from a personality like you, to whom the miniature books world ows so much.
I wish you HAPPY BIRTHDAY from my hart and may you have the strength
to help us younger people to continue this elegant and refined exercise of
which is miniature books production and collecting.
I take the liberty to mail this message to all our members (and not to your
address only), since I believe that all our MBS fellows should know that
GLEN DAWSON IS 87. CONGRATULATIONS from all of us.
I would also like to thank you for your generous offer to send me the greek
printed by William Cheney. I will gladly accept it. By my turn, I will send
to you and
Mary Helen a greek children book written by a 13-years old girl, as a
the first attempts of the greek publishers in this field. You will notice
it is far from the quality of the books printed by your private presses (we
have private presses in Greece), but still a good start. It will give an
to Mary Helen's collection.
Regarding William Cheney's Fleecestreet's Greek in a Nutshell, I feel lucky
posses it (thanks to Jon Mayo). It is one of my favourites books. I must
also its LATIN brother (perhaps Jon still has it available).
My regards to Mary Hellen.
