Notes

Limited edition, number 90 of 240 copies. An attractive example of a production of a lesser-known American private press, printed by Jacob Hammer on handmade paper, after the Praetorius Facsimile edition of the first quarto of 1609. The Anvil Press was a small association of ten printing enthusiasts, active during the fifties and selling their productions at cost.
