The books of the Doves Press formed a key stage in the development of modern book design. This text offers a full account of the first and most famous private press of the 20th century. Cobden-Sanderson's stormy partnership with Emery Walker is recounted, including the final episode when Cobden-Sanderson threw the Doves type into the River Thames to prevent it going to Walker after his death. A full bibliography of the books and papers printed at the Doves Press is included, as well as a list of all the ephemeral items.
