They were reproduced by Rainbows, Inc. Of Hazardville, Connecticut, and the Holyoke Lithographing Company of Holyoke, Massachusetts. For the format and design, we owe gratitude to David Way of The Thistle Press in New York.
It was he who decided printing the original Hebrew on each left-hand page facing the English of the revised King James version on the right "En face" is the technical term for this. Way selected the Peninum type for the Hebrew and Bembo for the English text. The Hebrew pages are printed in crimson ink.Although the line begins on the right in the Hebrew, as it should, the Hebrew pages in our book proceed from the front to the back instead of from what we would call the back to the front as it would in a traditional Hebrew volume. The Thistle Press printed our edition of Ecclesiastes on a heavyweight, white wove rag paper, with a deckle edge, especially made to Mr. Way's specifications by the Curtis Paper Company in Newark, Delaware. The binding of full natural lambskin was accomplished by the venerable William Fortney. There is an allover scroll design worked into the front and back covers, with the spine lettered in pure gold leaf.
This is number 970 of 1500 copies, and is signed by Edgar Miller. The offer includes both the necessary four page Limited Editions Club Monthly Letter and the pre-publication announcement. This book should appeal to almost anyone: to avid readers of the Bible, to students and teachers of philosophy and religion, and because of the outstanding condition of the book and slipcase to serious collectors of Limited Editions Club titles. It would be a book to cherish in any library and thus also would be a terrific gift to a deserving or special individual of almost any age.
