Most widely held works by Grolier Club
English in print from Caxton to Shakespeare to Milton by Valerie R Hotchkiss( )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This title explores the concept of putting the English language into print with close study of the texts, formats, audiences and functions of English books. Lavishly illustrated with images of rare books, the volume investigates a range of issues regarding the dissemination of English language and culture through printed works
Miniature books : 4,000 years of tiny treasures by Anne Bromer( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Miniature Books is the first lavishly illustrated, authoritative book on the delightful subject of books no taller than three inches. A dazzling array of books on subjects ranging from Shakespeare's plays and the Holy Bible to politics and presidents, children's books, the pleasures of life, and more are shown--with few exceptions--at their actual size. Here is the prayer book that Anne Boleyn carried to her execution, seen open to its sole illustration, a portrait of Henry VIII. Here also are the world's two smallest books (impossible to be sure which is tinier). There are books studded with gemstones, books that Napoleon carried with him on his campaigns, books illustrated by artists such as Picasso, Miró, and Edward Gorey. And there is a section dealing with the papers, printing, and binding of these tiny marvels. The text is lively and accessible, full of great stories and fascinating people. It will appeal to the experienced collector, but also to the one just starting out and to anyone who loves the look and feel of a good book

A century for the century : fine printed books from 1900 to 1999 by Martin Hutner( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These lists are usually generated in neat doses of one hundred titles. Here then (at least in the opinions of Messrs. Hutner and Kelly) are the hundred greatest printed books of the twentieth century. Given another pair of editors, you d probably be offered a different list, but this one serves and serves well, for it concentrates not only on the recognized chestnuts, but also lesser-known, and often exceedingly récherché volumes that have left their mark. It is noteworthy that only two books in the survey were printed by offset; the rest are all letterpress. And although America is strongly represented, there are also selections from Italy, France, Germany, the Netherlands, England, Wales and Switzerland. Every book is illustrated in fine line duotone, many in color, and best of all, the captions that accompanied the original Grolier exhibit have been transcribed intact. In their two prefatory essays, Hutner has provided a convincing defense of his choices (1900 1948), and Kelly, a spirited apologia for his (1949 1999). Joe Blumenthal ended his survey of fine printing in America with the observation that the art of the book, one of the slender graces of civilization, works its charm on each new generation. This survey, while admittedly neither comprehensive nor definitive, provides an excellent overview of fine printing over the past hundred years. Despite Morison s contention that typography is the most conservative of all the arts, the form of the book continues to mutate, evolve, and advance. If we are to overcome the complexities of a digital age, we would do well to appreciate, if not embrace, that heritage. -- Amazon.com
