Circa: 1889
Condition: Very Good
Publisher: The British Printer

This 1889 edition of The Printers International Specimen Exchange Volume X contains some of the most beautiful and prolific works of art produced in 1888. This edition is Extremely Rare, complete, and in very good condition. The binding remains very tight, there is noticeable wear on the leather cover and edges as well as bent corners, and the page ends show discoloration and some roughness. Inside the quality and integrity of the prints remains extremely fine. This volume measures approximately 9 ¾" x 12" and the minimum requirement for artwork inclusion is 11 ¼" x 8 ¾" . Each was produced on high quality paper or card stock. Featured within are amazing examples of high quality advertising, calendars, prints and letterheads from around the world. All are original specimens and were assembled by the Printers’ International Specimen Exchange with a total of Approximately 400 copies produced (many left unbound as there was a separate charge of 6/6 per volume). Having been produced in London the actual location is unknown.

The introduction to this edition includes the following excerpts.

"Amongst the new subscribers, Spain puts in an appearance with five excellent specimens, France and Russia have increased to three each, while New Zealand and Ceylon are represented for the first time. America and Australia remain stationary.
There are in the tenth volume 406 specimens, 72 from abroad and 334 contributed by the craft in the United Kingdom. Scotland is waking up and comes to the front with 35 contributions, nearly all of a very high order of merit. We hope to see this improvement continue. The Emerald Isle contributes five, and the ‘gallant little Wales’ four, England being responsible for the big majority of 290."

" As regards style and execution, Germany and America still lead the way,"

"In a word, the current volume shews more fully than any of its predecessors that paying printing – the best effect with the least labour – is being studied much more than formerly in connexion with fine work."

"Members can have their volumes uniformly and artistically bound in half-vellum laced with catgut, and lettered in gold, at a charge of 6/6 per volume."

Due to the limited number of pictures we have chosen a basic sampling. Each edition has hundreds of beautiful Lithographs and the process has been very difficult. Additional pictures and descriptions are available upon request. Please be specific in your requests. This edition of The Printers’ International Specimen Exchange is original and very unique. We have not seen any others from this period available to the public. Of the handful of editions known, many reside in private institutions that received them as a part of donated collections and papers. International clients are requested to contact us prior to submitting an order for this item. International orders may be declined based upon shipping destination and will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
