This is an exact reproduction, cast in pewter, showing a woman seated at the binder's table, hard at work. 2pp prospectus is laid-in. Newton: Bird & Bull Press, [1996]. A fine copy.

It was quite a moving moment when I actually set eyes on the letters this morning! Thank you very much - doing business with you was an uncommercial pleasure. Kind regards - Benno
