PAGA



[This message has been sent to Book_Arts-L, Exlibris, and SHARP.]

Roderick Stinehour has recently turned over the remaining stock of PAGA to
the Book Arts Press, and we have made up substantial =96 though incomplete =
=96
runs of the journal for sale.
        _Printing and Graphic Arts_ (better known as PAGA) was a distinguished
American journal of printing history published by the Stinehour Press
between 1953 and 1965. It was edited by Stinehour, Ray Nash, and Rollo G.
Silver.
        Issues generally appeared three times a year; they were then reissued as
handsome annual hardbound volumes. Ten volumes in all were published.
Complete sets of _PAGA_ sell in the $350 range. Individual bound volumes
(they are rather uncommon) sell in the $20-$30 range.

We offer a run of about 3/4 of the complete set, as follows:=20

        Volume I Nos 1,2,4 =20
        Volume III No. 3   =20
        Volume IV complete
        Volume V complete
        Volume VI complete
        Volume VII complete
        Volume VIII complete
        Volume IX complete
        Volume X Nos 1-2

for $50 postpaid. The complete volumes are in the hardback issue; many of
them are in their glassine wrappers and still in their original boxes, and
all of them are as new: books, wrappers, and boxes, all in genuinely mint
condition.

The editors OF _PAGA_ were successful in attracting distinguished
contributors, the more so in that they had the physical resources of the
Stinehour Press at their disposal: the illustrations in _PAGA_ are=
 noteworthy.
        Volume III includes articles by James M. Wells, Alvin Eisenman, Carl
Purington Rollins, Harry Carter, P. J. Conkwright ("Binny & Ronaldson's $
Sign"), and Adrian Wilson.
        Volume IV includes articles by Warren Chappell, Marcus A. McCorison, Jacob
Kainen, Philip Gaskell ("New Studies in Old Bookmaking at Cambridge
University"), and Philip Hofer.
        Volume V includes articles by Jan van Krimpen, Carey S. Bliss, Herbert
Davis ("The Art of Printing: Joseph Moxon and His Successors"), and
Frederic G. Melcher.
        Volume VI includes articles by F. B. Adams Jr, Gilbert Highet, Mike Parker
("Punches and Matrices of the Museum Plantin-Moretus"), and Aldren Watson.
        Volume VII includes articles by Gillett Griffin ("John Foster's Woodcut of
Richard Mather," with 4 remarkable folding collotype plates), Sinclair H.
Hitchings, and Dorothy King ("Notes on the Gehenna Press").
        Volume VIII includes articles by H. Allen Burt, Ray Nash ("J. J. Lankes"),
and Joseph Low.
        Volume IX includes articles by Merald E Wrolstad, Darrell Hyder, and James
Eckman ("Barnhart Brothers & Spindler Specimen Books").

Like _The Fleuron_, the _Colophon_ series, and _Signature_, _PAGA_ is full
of important articles everybody means to read, or reread, someday. Here is
an unusual chance to do so the easy way. Our price has intentionally been
set very low: _PAGA_ is full of articles that deserve new readers.
