A PRINTER'S PROOF FOR THE BOOK "VOLTAIRE'S MICROMEGAS" By Elizabeth Hall. Illustrated by Don Freeman. 1967. The proof is for the double page spread used as the frontispiece and title page. It includes lettering overlays for the title, etc. with printed directions by Freeman for the printers. Freeman has indicated that the word "MICROMEGAS" on the title page should be outlined in black with solid yellow inside - however, the finished production used a solid red for the title instead of the yellow. Note: the overlays (which are present) were originally attached with scotch tape but now are detached. In excellent condition. The proof measures 20" x 8". Please see enlargements 4 & 5 which show the final printed versions in the book, however, the book does not accompany the proof.
