The catalogue was produced for the sales of books and manuscripts that took place on November 9 - 10 1989. In Nicholas Barker's foreword, he makes mention of the Exhibition 'Printing and the Mind of Man' that took place in Earl's Court 1963 and in so doing is marking the importance of the lots in the catalogue here offered.

Lot 1. an Egyptian Book of the Dead (c.10870-746 BC) to Lot 308. Moby Dick by Melville 1979 reflect the time span evidenced in this catalogue.

The catalogue is copiously illustrated and with many coloured images makes this an important reference book of the means of communication in the form of books and manuscripts.
Some very slight marking to the cloth boards,title and spine in gilt vg.
