Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection contains various printed ephemera, proofs, and booklets produced by either Bohne himself or other California fine printers, as well as correspondence and other materials related to his involvement in the Rounce & Coffin Club and the private press scene at large.
Pall W. Bohne (1935-2017) was a Southern California printer and bookbinder, specializing in letter press printing and miniature books. As the operator of Bookhaven Press in Rosemead, California from 1967-1992, Bohne produced numerous works of ephemera and printed pamphlets, including a few miniature books such as Haiku with Birds (1967), Highlights in the History of American Whaling (1968), and Jabberwocky, the Famous Mock Heroic Epic (1971). In 1971, Bohne became a member of the Rounce & Coffin Club, a bibliophilic and printing group founded by Grant Dahlstrom and Ward Ritchie. Bohne also worked in wood-engraving, bookplate design, and made his own relief half-tone blocks. He was also active in other fields such as beekeeping and blacksmithing.
