Comments

A bio-history of the engaging San Francisco bookseller and botanical printmaker Henry Evans (1918-1990), who founded the Porpoise Bookshop and Peregrine Press in San Francisco in the early 1950s with the assistance of wife Patricia and daughter Judith. Evans later became a prominent botanical printmaker. This monograph, the annual keepsake published by The Book Club of California, includes a checklist of all the publications of the Peregrine Press, Porpoise Bookshop and Henry Evans, Printmaker. It was handsomely designed by Jonathan Clark of the Artichoke Press. Many of the illustrations have not been previously published.
