Very scarce address given by the eminent librarian Lawrence Clark Powell to memorialize Saul Marks, distinguished Los Angeles printer who with his wife Lillian established the Plantin Press. A beautifully preserved, handsome book. Thin but full of wonderful reminiscensces of the life of a great and most interesting book man. Large decorated initial in red begins the text. Title page in red and green is simply but artfully designed. The boards patterned in a lovely shade of blue. This was a wonderful tribute to Saul Marks. Size: Tall Quarto, 5pp + Colophon.
