Toothpaste Press

Alan Stein

Beiler Press

Four broadsides that have nothing to do with each other...
One from Beiler Press with no appreciable impression (not a good thing), one from artist Alan Stein, an older one from Allan Kornbluth's Toothpaste Press, and the jewel in this four-sided crown, an elaborate broadside from Wilder Bentley's Archetype Press. This copy is inscribed by the artist to a friend. $175


The Council of Perfection

(Wilder Bentley's Induction to) "The Council of Perfection"
Giclée facsimile of a broadside printed 1934 and "endorsed" (signed) by a number of famous American printers and typographers from the early 20th century, including Porter Garnett, Helen gentry, Robert & Jane Grabhorn, John Henry Nash and Wilder Bentley. One of 10 facsimiles from an original in HM's collection, 12 x 18" printed on rag paper. Every print shop should have a copy. $40 (1 copy left)

The Council of Perfection

An extract from Gil Adornatori Del Libro In Italia?
I can offer only a guess of what these 9 leaves came from, which is one of the volumes of Gil Adornatori Del Libro In Italia published during the 1920s. The page size is correct (10 x 14") and the pages seem to match in style what images I see online. Three lovely, large initials in the leaves. The group is Pagina 5 ("Un profilo di Cesare Ratta Due parole del Compilatore") through Pagina 22. Some wear to edges. $25 ($20 if you can tell me what the leaves are from)

Paul Brown Aquatints

Three Equestrian Aquatints
Brown, Paul. Derrydale Press, 1937.
“Music Ahead,” “Hoick!” and “Kennel Bound.” Images approx. 22 x 18 inches on handmade paper approx. 31 x 23 inches. Signed & numbered. In original burled maple frames with new acid-free matting. Probably wwould cost a bundle to ship as is, so buyer may prefer to just have the prints sent rolled. Good condition, maybe a little sun fading (only apparent if taken out of the mat). Seem to have been in frames since purchase. Print seller’s ticket on back of frames. Beautifully executed prints (these images don't do them justice), I’m just not that into horses. James Cummins has two of the three listed at $3,750, and a complete set at auction in 2012 got $2,000. These three $300 each, or $750 for the trio.
