Santa Cruz, CA: The Good Book Press, 1988. [64] pp. Approximately 1 15/16 x 1 9/16". LIMITED EDITION of 200 copies, of which the first 100 copies are printed on paper made during Shakespeare's lifetime (from a damaged copy of Digestrum Novum: 1576) and the second 100 copies use Peter Thomas' handmade paper. 1/4 gilt morocco spine, paper over boards, illustrated by Donna Thomas, very minor wear, in fine condition. (Bradbury, Peter and Donna Thomas, 26).

A beautiful miniature by well-known book artists, authors, and paper-makers Peter and Donna Thomas, this particular copy, instead of being hand-numbered on the limitation page as the rest of the edition, it bears a handwritten dedication: "for Louis Marder." Marder was a world-renowned Shakespeare scholar, author, professor at Kent State University and the University of Illinois in Chicago, and a self-proclaimed "Shakespeare Antiquarian." He founded the Shakespeare Newsletter in 1951 and edited it until 1991. The book presents a fascinating study of paper-mills and paper-making, as seen and described in various Shakespeare works.
