Watertown, MA: Kurbel Books, 1985. Approximately 2 x 2 9/16". LIMITED EDITION of 300 copies. Red paper slipcase with illustrations and title in fine condition. Pictorial paper wrappers, peepshow format, postage stamps, art and calligraphy by E. Helene Sherman, numbered on the colophon, bookmark ribbon with miniature key, in fine condition. (Bradbury, Kurbel Books 3). Accompanying this item is a Kurbel Books catalog scroll, a beautiful keepsake from a past conclave.

A little two-page history of the Vatican, along with stamps, a key and a charming peepshow, all combine to make this a lovely and surprising miniature book. The scroll, designed and illuminated by E. Helene Sherman in 1984, has sections of illuminated letters, spelling out K.U.R.B.E.L. with an order from on the end. Clever and beautifully done and not sold publicly at the time.
