Item Description: Cleveland & NY: World Publishing, 1949., 1949. Folio (13 1/2 x 16). xxii, 942 double column pages. Decorative headpieces & initials throughout. Full red leather, spine and sides gilt from BR's design, top edge gilt. (The edition binding was red cloth gilt with the same designs.) A fine, almost as new copy of this "American folio Bible of noble proportions." This copy belonged to Abe Lerner, Art Director for World Publishing and chiefly responsible for its production. Inscribed to him by Bruce Rogers, A. Colish (printer), and Frank Fortney (binder). One of 25 copies with a pictorial headpiece at the opening of Genesis, and specially bound. Rogers composed the title page & decorations for the 66 books in combinations of printers flowers with a "slightly oriental flavor.indicative of the Syriac and Hebrew sources." Except for Genesis. It depicts --entirely in type ornaments--Adam & Eve, in the garden of Eden with birds, beasts, & fish; the Hebrew word for Yahweh appears in a cloud. The publisher, Ben Zevin, favored an unadorned text and cited "adverse opinions" about the decorations. "The only objections I have heard," replied Rogers, "were to the special illustrative decoration which I made for the beginning of Genesis only. Some of my conservative friends thought it too frivolous, too much of a typographic 'stunt,' so I abandoned it, except for a few of my own copies." (Quoted in The Making of the Bruce Rogers World Bible p. 12.) Rogers received 10 of the 25 special copies. The balance "were distributed within the inner circle, including President Truman." (Quoted in a letter from Zevin to Herbert Johnson.) Rogers worked on the Bible for four years. He modified Goudy's 18 point Newstyle type (making this the first appearance of Goudy Bible type). Two years were required for hand composition. Rogers chose for the text a 75% linen rag paper, specially sized for letterpress printing with heavy ink. BR designed the binding as well, with four Old Testament signs on the upper cover, and four symbols of the Apostles on lower cover. This Bible was intended as the American equivalent of Rogers' Oxford lectern Bible. Although Colish printed 975 copies, some 325 sets of sheets were lost--accounting in part for the Bible's scarcity on the market. Many were given to churches as lectern Bibles, further reducing their availability. Bookseller Inventory # 1

Item Description: Way & Williams,, Chicago:, 1896. First edition. [FICTION: WOMEN: SHORT STORIES]. PEATTIE, Elia W. A MOUNTAIN WOMAN [Short Stories] by Elia W. Peattie. Twelvemo, blue cloth decorated in gilt (with front and rear covers designed by Bruce Rogers) [Haas. Bruce Rogers 9], pp. [x], 251, top edge gilt. Illustrated throughout by noted political cartoonist, Homer Davenport, with twelve original pencil drawings (most of which are finely executed full-page drawings, occupying blank leaves), and inscribed by him in 1904. The second drawing (on verso of half-title page) is a caricature of an African-American woman, in full length, in profile (the drawing measures circa 6 by 4 inches, and occupies the bulk of the blank leaf opposite the title page). This drawing is inscribed by Homer Davenport, adjacent the drawing: "Yours very truly/ Homer Davenport/ Feb 28th, 1904." Caption in pencil holograph: "from the Mountain of Tenn. The changing of a dull day to sunshine." Another drawing is a full-page self-portrait (from the chest up, in profile), signed in full beneath: "Homer Davenport." The subjects of the other drawings, most of which are full-page, include caricatures of African-American and Asian figures, a portrait of an unnamed woman (similar in style to his self-portrait), a caricature of two hillbilly figures, a drawing of a horse (from the neck up, in profile, with ornate bridal), inscribed beneath: "Sultan, a present from his [word?] majesty. [words?]" [Davenport was a pioneer in the breeding of Arabian horses, and was responsible for bringing some of the earliest desert bred Arabian horses to America]. Also inscribed on the dedication leaf, in pencil (presumably in the hand of Elia W. Peattie?): "To my Best Friend, May 31, 1902" [the book's printed dedication states: "To My Best Friend, and kindest Critic, My Husband"]. Illustrated with twelve original finely executed pencil drawings by noted political cartoonist, Homer Davenport, two of which are inscribed and signed by him. Homer Davenport (1867-1912) was an influential editorial cartoonist/political caricaturist. He was best known for his satirical drawings and support of Progressive Era politics. His work appeared in the San Francisco Examiner, San Francisco Chronicle, and the New York Evening Journal. His caricatures of political figures he considered corrupt, such as U.S. Senator Mark Hanna, lead to an unsuccessful attempt to pass anti-cartoon legislation in the New York State Senate. Early ink signature of Olive B. Sarre on front flyleaf, and with her later ink inscription beneath: "These drawings were done by Homer Davenport on a train between New York & Buffalo, in 1904. O.B.S. April, 1953" [Olive Saare and Frank Seaman founded the Yama Farms Inn, an exclusive Catskills Resort, in Napanoch, N.Y., known to have been frequented by some of the most important and influential figures of the 20th century, including John D. Rockefeller, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, John Burroughs et al.].Cloth is rubbed on spine, with tiny tear at crown, faint soil mark on front cover, title page has early, neat glue mend at inner hinge (where over-opened), with two early cello-tape mends on verso of dedication leaf (affixed to foreword leaf), else a very good copy.

Item Description: New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1940., 1940. Arthur Rackham’s "Wind in the Willows"[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. GRAHAME, Kenneth. The Wind in the Willows. With an Introduction by A.A. Milne & Illustrations by Arthur Rackham. New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1940.Limited to 2,020 numbered copies (this copy being No. 1315), signed by the designer, Bruce Rogers. Quarto (11 3/8 x 8 1/8 inches; 289 x 207 mm.). [2], 244, [2] pp. Sixteen mounted color plates. "Printed at the Walpole Printing Office The edition was designed by and printed under the supervision of Bruce Rogers" (Colophon).Original quarter pale yellow buckram over patterned paper boards. Spine lettered in gilt. Top edge gilt, others uncut. A very fine, partially uncut copy. In the original publisher’s olive green cardboard slipcase."The Wind in the Willows was not published in England until 1950, but it found two publishers, one for a de luxe edition (The Limited Editions Club, New York) and one for a trade edition (The Heritage Press, New York) in the United States posthumously in the year following Rackham’s death. The book is a gentle delight, presenting sixteen illustrations which in no way fight with the more famous imaginative world created by Shepherd, although if Shepherd had not preceded him, then Rackham might have anthropomorphized his creatures even more. Several of the plates are delightful: the ‘Golden Day when the three heroes walked by the Caravan, Mole leading a happy horse’; the placid Rat handing a hamper to put into a boat, a plate famous among Rackham lovers because it was the boat for which Rackham forgot to draw the oars, an omission which some see as significant in view of the artist’s imminent death. Perhaps the most interesting picture is the frontispiece, which depicts the egocentric Toad levelled to the drab clothes of a no-pocket washerwoman, hopping about permissively, totally unequipped for the real contest. In the real world of people, like all egoists, animal or human, he is alien, and it is a typical piece of Rackhamerie that we should see two children laughing at the glum toad, not because he is a toad, but because he is obviously pretending to be something else.It is with a sense of a serious loss that one turns to the imprint of the de luxe edition in search of the familiar Rackham signature, and finds not the careful hand of Rackham, but that of the designer Bruce Rogers, who saw the book and Rackham’s pictures through the press." (Gettings, Arthur Rackham. Pp. 168-169)."This was the final book Arthur Rackham illustrated before his death in 1939" (Riall, pp. 197-198). I. Bookseller Inventory # 02735

Item Description: ROGERS, Bruce. Typed Letters Signed. Group of three autograph letters signed by the famous American book designer and one from the owner of a well-known bookstore. The first letter [1] is dated Jan. 7, 1940 to Rogers from Joseph W. Roberts, of St. Albans Book Shop in St. Albans, NY, asking for bibliographical information on two books published by Way & Williams of Chicago, being: Shelley's translations of the "Banquet of Plato" (with the title-page and decorations reported to be by Rogers) and Drachmann's "Paul and Virginia of a Northern Zone" (for which the sender cannot find any illustrations although Rogers was listed as an illustrator). With a second letter [2] from Rogers, responding to Roberts: "I am afraid I can't help you in the matter of the Way & Williams book." He writes he vaguely remembers the title but can't recall actually seeing the book. "I did several books and cover designs about that time for Way & Williams but adds the decorations were probably "contemplated, but never carried through." The third [3] letter, dated April 5, 1944, is also from Rogers to Roberts negotiating to trade for two of his own books that he does not own- each listed in Roberts' bookstore catalog. "I have very little cash for books- let alone my own" but Rogers offers to trade books. The two books he requests are "The Glory of New York" and "Paul at Virginia." He also agrees to autograph the books he hopes to exchange as part of the deal. The books he wants to exchange are "Letters of T.E. Shaw to B.R." and More letters of T.E.S. to B.R." Letter four [4] is also from Rogers to Roberts, dated May 14, 1944, stating he has sent the Lawrence books but was unhappy with the binding on one of the books since the binder "stamped it, without my knowledge, in imitation gold- but the whole edition is like that." Also with three used envelopes addressed by Rogers to Roberts. Also thrown in is an extra item [5]: a 1940 library slip signed by Rogers, on which he signs to check out a book by Shakespeare. The whole, interesting package: $750.00. Bookseller Inventory # 2489
