NotesRare complete set of the Dolmen chapbooks in the original paper wrappers. "The idea behind the Dolmen chapbooks was to print short texts with illustrations, using various type formats and techniques within a uniform page size The series gives a fair picture of the very personal interests which informed the Press at this time, and several of the titles were issued in other formats" (Miller 17). The set of twelve pamphlets is divided into three groups of four, each with a paper wrapper, and with the series wrapper enclosing the complete set. Most of the individual pamphlets were published in editions of only 250, and complete sets are extremely uncommon.
12 pamphlets housed loosely in the original paper wrappers.
Occasional minor creases. An excellent set.
