This is the David Magee Catalogue No. 42 which, as Magee put it, is "This Omnium Gatherum of Grabhorn Press books, the largest ever assembled for sale." This collection of Grabhorn publications was from several sources. By 1961, Grabhorn Press was a well know and respected institution in fine press publications. Over the years, the Grabhorn brothers and Jane Grabhorn collaborated with well known and not so well known authors, illustrators and others to produce a breath and depth of work that is still very impressive as one of the publishers of fine press work in the 20th Century.
