A letterpress printed broadside of a book curse, printed in black and red. This curse was claimed to have been attributed to the Monastery of San Pedro in Barcelona by Sir Matthew Mahan in his 1712 book "Travels in Spanish countries." In reality, the curse was created by Edmund Lester Pearson for his "Old librarian's almanack" in 1909. The colophon reads: "Printed this November of 1990 at the Center for Book Arts, New York, New York. 35 copies in ? type." CBA has two copies.
