Our Latest Publication


The TRUE and GENUIN ELEGY OF Matthew Gun Bookseller
NP: Aliquando Press, 2014. 1 of 125 copies. Size is 15" x 10 1/2". A reprinting of an early Eighteenth century broadside on the pitiful lot of the bookseller then. This is copied from the original held by the British Library. We have been unable to trace any other copy and we felt it was worthy of a Twenty-first century revival. Now that the book trade is perhaps more threatened than at any earlier time, Matthew Gunís lament resonates strongly. It has been printed by Will Rueter at his Aliquando Press in Garamond, the display fonts are ATF Baskerville and xiv Century Roman. Itís is printed on Hahnemuble white mould made paper. Rueter is one of the foremost designers and private printers in Canada and we are very pleased he agreed to take on the project. This printing is indicative of the quality of Rueterís work and now that we have exhausted our list of friends we offer copies for sale.
