Bob Fleck, founder, owner, and president of the Press, tells the story of his adventures in publishing. Bob decided to leave the field of chemical engineering in 1976 to start Oak Knoll Books, an antiquarian bookseller specializing in books about books. Two years later, he started publishing in the same field, beginning with a reprint of Bigmore and Wyman's A Bibliography of Printing. Oak Knoll Press has operated out of several buildings and under several publishing directors, but in the thirty years of its existence, it has developed a reputation for excellence in the field of books about books. The Press has published 320 books to date and is still going strong." "The book begins with a fifty-page history of the press, which is well illustrated with more than fifty images. The history is followed by the bibliography, which lists 320 books in order of publication. Each entry includes the author, title, edition, and a brief physical description, as well as a paragraph describing the contents of the book. Any subsequent reprints are also listed. The bibliography includes about twenty full-page images of Oak Knoll Press publications. Books about Books is sure to be a useful tool for all of those wishing to expand their Oak Knoll Press collection or understand individual titles in the context of the whole."--BOOK JACKET.
