About this Item

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.
