JF Ptak Science Books Quick Post
This beautiful, home-made pamphlet was pieced together in 1847 or thereabouts, bits of an article on Attica by Professor A.L. Koeppen, cut from the North American and U.S. Gazetteer, and then pasted onto and covering the pages and cover of a chapbook. Everything about this little (5"-tall) book is stiff--the flexible paper wrappers of the pamphlet and its pages had been soaked with glue to such a degree that they're all like boards, but with the feel and sound of paper. All in all the feel of the book is very satisfying, and very comforting, somehow.
