[Dundas]: The Aliquando Press, [2008]. Octavo, 22.8 x 15.5 cm. Cased in quarter red cloth, with printed paper title label to the spine, and decorated paper covered boards; the covering paper was designed by Georg Rueter circa 1900. Housed in a blue Card Linen paper slipcase with paper title label to the spine. pp. [7], 6-55, [3], plus 7 leaves bearing illustrations printed on Mohawk Superfine paper. A fine copy. “The text pages were created by Reg Beatty, and Stan Bevington prepared the book for printing at Coach House Press.” The text was set digitally in Quadraat type, with Carolus and Trajanus used for display. Printed on Zephyr Antique paper. One of 250 copies, this being one of 25 specially bound copies. 10 of the specially bound copies were presumably retained as hors commerce, while copies 11-25 contain a limitation page signed by Rueter; this copy is one of the latter. Its number is given as 24 on the limitation page and 25 on the colophon page, making this an exclusive offering of two numbers for the price of one!

An invaluable reference source for admirers and enthusiasts of The Aliquando Press, Canadian fine printing, and exceptional book making more broadly. This admirer and enthusiast wouldn’t have been able to identify many of the numerous typefaces and rich varieties of paper employed at The Aliquando Press without it. Item #226
