1977 Arion Press PSALMS OF DAVID AND OTHERS Fine Printing in Slipcase 1/200
THE PSALMS OF DAVID AND OTHERS. Two Volumes in Slipcase.
Published by the ARION PRESS, San Francisco, 1977. This was the fifth book printed by the Arion Press. Early and Rare.
LIMITED EDITION of only 200 copies. From the Colophon Page (the last page): "The Psalms of David and Others, translated by Arthur Golding, has been printed in an edition limited to two hundred copies by Andrew Hoyem, with the assistance of George F. Ritchie...Completed in July of 1977. This is the fifth book of the Arion Press, San Francisco."
Two Volumes, THE PSALMS OF DAVID & OTHERS and a COMPANION VOLUME, together in a slipcase. THE PSALMS is bound in hardcovers with vellum spine and corners, 9.5x14 inches, 189 pages plus some prelim pages and a Colophon page. The Companion Volume is in wrappers with a paper title label, 43 pages. Together in a cloth covered slipcase.
Condition: The paper covered boards of THE PSALMS have brown coffee-colored drop stains primarily to the edges and front margins. It appears almost as if the paper was stained before being applied to the boards (however unlikely that might be) because there is NO staining to the page edges, the endpapers, or any of the inner pages as one would normally expect. Otherwise the covers are solid and tight. Internally, all the pages are in excellent condition, tight, bright, clean, clear and unmarked. The Companion Volume is in Near Fine condition, tight, bright, clean and unmarked. The slipcase has a few small stains here and there and the spine title label is browned; otherwise the slipcase is solid and doing its job well.
Early, limited, Arion Press publication. Fine printing with the noted stained covers, still complete, presentable, and RARE.
