Last post on this topic for a while. Found under the tree last Xmas morning: the two-volume large-paper set of The Annals of Scottish Printing (1890). I can spend hours with books like this. Vol. 1 is largely based on the original work of Robert Dickson, prepared for publication here by John Philip Edmond, who completed the project and wrote the chapters in Vol. 2.
Vol. 1 has numerous facsimile reproductions from blocks made for Dickson; unfortunately Edmond didn't have the energy or means to repeat this in his volume, which contains very few illustrations.
One of the problems for printers publishing a book about printing is, they're printing had better be more than adequate. Also under the tree was Early Nottingham Printers & Printing, printed for private circulation by Thomas Forman & Sons in 1942. A loose sheet laid in at the front shows a family tree for this firm going back to 1710.
