schema:reviewBody""The Doves Press is the fullest account to date of this, the first and most famous private press of the twentieth century." "Beginning with the full text of T.J. Cobden-Sanderson's 'The Ideal Book', and its author's reaction to the books printed by Willam Morris at the Kelmscott Press, The Doves Press tells the story of the cutting of the famous Doves type, the printing of Paradise Lost, Paradise Regain'd, and The English Bible, and Cobden-Sanderson's close collaboration with the calligrapher Edward Johnston. The saga of Cobden-Sanderson's short and stormy partnership with Emery Walker is recounted in detail, leading ultimately to the final episode where Cobden-Sanderson throws the Doves type into the River Thames to prevent it from falling into Walker's hands after his death." "A detailed descriptive bibliography of all the books and papers printed at the Doves Press is provided, together with a list of all ephemeral items. This book will be welcomed by all those with an interest in the history of printing, the Arts and Crafts movement, private presses, calligraphy, and fine books."--BOOK JACKET."
