Title: The Workmen of the Temple: A Treatise on ...
Publisher: Chicago: The Stevens-Davis Co., 1922
Publication Date: 1922
43. p. This is a lovely little book in regard to the art of bookmaking, and the content is equally interesting. The author argues that manufacturing inevitably produces "waste or dross," and that modern business practices similarly produces unwanted "slag," the contention between employer and employee. This essentially is an argument against unionization-that if workers are properly educated to see that the bosses' interests and their interests are the same, they will be become willing and happy workers and all will succeed. The book (small octavo, 6 3/4" x 4 1/4") is bound in soft black leather with an ornate decoration and title on the spine, with marbled endpapers; the text is printed on a high-quality deckle-edged paper that has been folded in two and printed with the deckle edge at the bottom, so that the pages are double-thick; there is a ribbon marker; there are a few tiny rubs on the cover.
