Shakespeare Tercentenary Observance in the Schools and Other Institutions. 8vo, 23cm, 31p, Geo. W. Jones at The Sign of the Dolphin, Gough Square, London, 1916.
Designed by Fred Richards, set in 'Venezia' and printed in red and black on Abbey Mills paper with elaborate use of ornament and initials. Linen-backed marbled paper-covered boards, predominantly green, blue and bistre. A fine copy.
An important piece of printing, this was the first use of Venezia. Despite being ornate, this seems to me one of the best programmes printed by Jones.
