Navy cloth with gilt spine titles, 22 by 28.5 cm, 299 pp. Near fine but for a name in pen on the ffep. From the introduction: “The Register presents the names of individuals and firms connected with the graphic arts in the city of New York between the years 1821 and 1842 with reference, where useful, to the Register for the period 1633-1820 compiled by George L. McKay and published by the New York Public Library in 1942. We share with this predecessor the goal that ‘the list may be of value not only as a record of those who were engaged in these trades and professions but that, from the recorded occupations, adresses, firm names and other dated information, it may be of some assistance also in dating undated books, papers and pictures, and in identifying anonymous printers, publishers, artists, etc.’” We ship our books in boxes or cardboard wraps, never in bags.
