"This edition was hand printed by the Scripps College typography class in the spring of 1991. The text is in 14/20 pt. Scripps Goudy Oldstyle, on Niddegen paper. The border was modified from a 15th century Book of Hours in the British Museum: Karley ms.2952. The text was printed in dark brown and wine with the border in copper. The binding has eight signatures sewn over tapestry ribbons which are sewn onto museum board covers. The endpapers are Fabriano Roma."--Colophon.
