AYERDALE PRESS. EMMONS, Earl H. ~ Odeography of B. Franklin.
No. 62 of 100 copies. Printed in Bodoni & Ultra Bodoni type on Laidtone paper. 8vo., original black cloth with printed paper label. Slight rubbing to very tips of spine, a couple of tiny marks to cloth, generally extremely good.
Apparently the only publication from Emmons’s Ayerdale Press but with really interesting typographical layout by the noted poet and printer Emmons who wrote, designed and composed the book.
The text is a verse tribute to Benjamin Franklin, which, as the author declares in the foreword, does not conceal his “somewhat loose, erotic nature”.
With the bookplate of Oliver Sheean.
