      If Santa didn't bring you that book you wanted, here's a chance to remedy
      your new year's book fix. It's time to thin out the library and would like
      to sell the following titles. If you're interested, please email me off-list
      at the address at the end of this email and we can work out details. Prices
      do not include shipping or insurance. Thanks.

      "TYPOGRAPHICAL PRINTING-SURFACES: The Technology and Mechanism of Their
      Production" Legros & Grant. 1916. 731 pp.
      This is the BIG BOOK on things typographic & mechanical at the turn of the
      century. Lots of great plates, drawings and illustrations. Some foxing to
      text pages; but plates and illustrations are clean and bright. Slight
      chipping at top of spine; front cover is coming loose; else tight and in
      remarkably good condition. $350.

      "HANDBOOK OF EARLY ADVERTISING ART" Volumes 1 & 2. Typographic and
      Pictorial; Dover 1956.
      This is the third edition of these two great resource books. Both copies are
      clean w/ dust jackets which are also in good condition (slight chipping
      around some edges). Sold as a 2-volume set only. Printing is clean, black
      and crisp. $65.

      "ARS TYPOGRAPHICA" Various Editors & Years of Publication.
      This is the "magazine" started by Goudy and taken over by others over the
      years. Each issue is a testiment to over-the-top letterpress printing. Some
      beautiful printed work and highly informative. Each issue has the chipped
      paper covers typical of this publication. Otherwise they are fine, tight
      copies. Would prefer to sell these as two groups of four. Purchase both sets
      and I'll throw in a couple of printers' trade magazines: "The Pacific
      Printer & Publisher" (nd, early 1920s?) and "The Printing Art," 1914. Both
      magazines are full of great ads and samples of the printing arts.

      Volume 1, No. 1-4; Spring 1918, Summer 1918, Spring 1920, Autumn 1934. $125.
      Volume 2, No. 1-4; July 1925, October 1925, January 1926, April 1926. $125.

      "FINE PRINT" Magazine. 1980s.
      The publication that encouraged a lot of folks to haul home thousand pound
      pieces of cast iron for the fine printing of good books. Although somewhat
      dated at this point, still a wealth of information and a great resource. 18
      Copies all in fine condition. $150.

      THE COMMON PRESS. Harris & Sisson. David R. Godine 1978.
      Two slim volumes in a paper covered slipcase. One volume is the TEXT and the
      other is the PLANS. Very good condition. Small chip at top of one spine; box
      is clean but slightly torn in one corner. Overall good shape. Includes as a
      special bonus, a Second set of plans copied oversized on a blue print
      machine. This was not part of the original edition.

      THE INLAND PRINTER: Various dates; Mostly 1923-24.
      Four bound volumes of the Inland Printer that have been somewhat
      "customized" by the owner. Articles have been cut out and pasted in, each
      volume has a tipped in typewritten index. Full of great ad and samples of
      printing. Also included is a bound volume of the Printing Art. Vol. 41,
      March-Aug. 1923. Lots of cool samples and ads in here. Together, these five
      volumes make a stack 9 inches tall. What better reason to take up some shelf
      space! $125.

      Thanks for letting me plug up your in-box.
