***First published by the Grolier Club in 1999, this first trade edition is "revised and enlarged". From the Foreword: "This survey includes only books printed from the greco-roman alphabets in Europe and America .... We have, however, considered the book as a whole - with all the elements - from typography and paper through presswork and binding - taken into account .... On the following pages are some of the most beautiful, finely printed books produced during the twentieth century arranged in chronological order." Each of the one hundred books chosen is represented with a fine illustration and a commentary on the basis for its inclusion. #17219
