Folio, 4to. & 8vo. A collection of 30 prospectuses, retrospectuses and other ephemera produced by The Nonesuch Press. ‘Completion of the 1923 programme’ and the ‘1931 Prospectus’ are quite foxed. Other pieces have some light foxing, creasing or pencil marks, but are generally in very good + to near fine condition.
The items correspond to the catalogue of Prospectuses (pages 265-276) in John Dreyfus’s A History of The Nonesuch Press (1981) as follows: P6; P7; P10; P11; P14; P15; P16; P18; P21; P25; P28; P29; P30; P31; P34; P35; P37; P39; P55; P56; P58. Also included are the prospectuses for eight individual productions 1934-5 and, as a bonus, the ticket and menu for the Francis Meynell Centenary Dinner held at Manchester Polytechnic Library on Friday 17th May 1991.
