Item Description: The University Press, Oxford, 1935. Rogers, Bruce (illustrator). Two folio volumes. xix, 1216pp., continuous pagination. One of 200 copies printed on Batchelor's handmade paper in modified Centaur type. This copy includes the limitation leaf, which is often missing. "Every book designed by Rogers was an individual accomplishment. The monument to his life work is the superb large folio Bible he designed and supervised at the University Press, Oxford. It will long remain as the finest of all presentations of the King James Version." (The Typographic Book, p. 56). Elsewhere, Blumenthal called the Oxford Bible "the most important printed book of the twentieth century" (Art of the Printed Book, pp. 50-1). Four-page prospectus in the seldom-seen Oxford Press wrapper is laid in. The copy has been handsomely bound in full red morocco by the Bookends Bindery. The design features circular lettering on the upper covers of each volume, bearing scriptural verse relevant to each book. In the case of the Old Testament, it is the opening line of Genesis; in the New Testament, it is the last line of Revelations. Each volume is housed in cloth clamshell cases. Magnificent bindings on a landmark typographic book. Very fine. Bookseller Inventory # 26601

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

A very fine copy housed in the original fleece lined, quarter olive green morocco over green cloth clamshell case."Alfred de Sauty (1870-1949) was a bookbinder who produced tooled bindings of exceptional delicacy. De Sauty was active in London from approximately 1898 to 1923 and in Chicago from 1923 to 1935. His finest work is thought to be have been accomplished between 1905 and 1914. Many aspects of his life are poorly documented. For instance, scholars are unsure whether, when in London, de Sauty worked independently, for the firm of Riviere & Sons, or both. While in London, he may also have been a designer for the Hampstead Bindery and a teacher at the Central School of Arts and Crafts. When he lived in Chicago, de Sauty worked for the hand bindery of R. R. Donnelley & Sons. He signed his work at the foot of the front doublure, if present, and at the center of the bottom turn-in of the front upper board, if not. Works he produced in London are signed "de S" or "De Sauty." Works he produced in Chicago are signed with his employer's name, 'R. R. Donnelly'" (Bound in Intrigue, Harvard Botany Libraries Online Exhibit)Francesco Petrarca (1304 - 1374), commonly anglicized as Petrarch, was an Italian scholar and poet in Renaissance Italy, and one of the earliest humanists. Petrarch's rediscovery of Cicero's letters is often credited for initiating the 14th-century Renaissance. Petrarch is often called the "Father of Humanism". In the 16th century, Pietro Bembo created the model for the modern Italian language based on Petrarch's works, as well as those of Giovanni Boccaccio, and, to a lesser extent, Dante Alighieri. Petrarch would be later endorsed as a model for Italian style by the Accademia della Crusca. Petrarch's sonnets were admired and imitated throughout Europe during the Renaissance and became a model for lyrical poetry. He is also known for being the first to develop the concept of the "Dark Ages.". I. Bookseller Inventory # 03704

Item Description: (Cambridge, Riverside Press, 1906)., 1906. 11 1/2 x 17 1/2. xxxiv double-column pages. Illustrated with seven "stained glass windows" richly colored by hand. Quarter vellum & boards decorated with a fleur-de-lis pattern, vellum tips. Minor faults to binding: small bump to spine base, light wear bottom edges, small white spot to one top edge, rear board faded top quarter. Small, contemporary booksellerâÄôs label on rear pastedown. A very good association copy, inscribed to Major W. Van R. Whitall. His small morocco booklabel has offset onto a part of the inscription. Inscribed "Dear Whitall, The pattern on the cover of this book was taken from a wall decoration in the Crypt at Chartres, and the illustrations from the Charlemagne window, Bruce Rogers." No. 53 of 220 copies on American handmade paper. Set in French lettre bâtarde & civilità types and hand printed in black, red, blue, and golden brown; opening initial printed in gold. Rogers had a hand--literally--in the binding: to achieve a mellow, antique effect, he rubbed a red paste wash over the printed paper. From the over 400 books he designed, Rogers selected (when asked in an interview) 30 which he considered totally successful. This is one of the "BR 30." American Art Association auctioned Whitall's library in 1927. Lots 1014 to 1087 were headed "Important Series of Books Designed by Bruce Rogers." This copy, illustrated in the auction catalogue, brought $300. The Riverside Press was the printing department of Houghton, Mifflin publishing company. The âÄúDepartment of Special BookmakingâÄĚ was Bruce RogersâÄô domain. George Mifflin was so proud of the âÄúRoland,âÄĚ he sent a copy to Theodore Roosevelt at the White House. The President was so impressed, he visited the Riverside Press to view RogersâÄô other special editions. Roosevelt wrote to Mifflin âÄúI am not an expert on these matters, but comparing that âÄėSong of RolandâÄô with other modern printing (notably with a very handsome edition of a great German book I have) it seemed to me far ahead, and almost like some of the very beautiful printing of books at the end of the Fifteenth Century.âÄĚWarde *71.

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 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].

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.

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.

Item Description: NY, September 1927., 1927. Rogers drew & lettered the proposed title page in black & green. He designed 4 different printed versions of double spread pages 14 and 15 (one of them printed in two colors). Previously mounted, the pages have old glue stains on the versos; dampstain at base of gutters. Laid into in a homemade marbled folder. In his 1 typed and 2 autograph letters, Rogers sounds at his wit's end and exasperated with Friede. Friede is obviously trying to pare costs.BR tells him that replacing the second color with a second size type will cost just as much--in labor--as BR's original proposal. It has taken BR some time to come up with a satisfactory setting in one color, "but at last [September 21] I send you the result. They seem to me clear and understandable, though I do not think them as good as the other scheme would have been." On September 27th BR sends the 3rd 4th layouts, which "I hope may prove satisfactory, as I have about exhausted the possibilities on this line." he goes on to discuss cost-saving changes to the binding and the final cost per copy. In the end, BR and Rudge did not receive the commission. Strange Interlude was designed by S. A. Jacobs and printed by Van Rees Press. Bookseller Inventory # 17738

Item Description: New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1940., 1940. Arthur Rackhamís "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 publisherís 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 Rackhamís 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 ĎGolden Day when the three heroes walked by the Caravan, Mole leading a happy horseí; 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 artistís 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 Rackhamís 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).Bruce Rogers (1870 Ė 1957) was an American typographer and type designer, acclaimed by some as among the greatest book designers of the twentieth century. Rogers was known for his "classical" style of design, rejecting modernism, never using asymmetrical arrangements, rarely using sans serif type faces, favoring stolid roman faces such as Caslon and his own Centaur.

Item Description: No place of publication: privately printed (The Columbiad Club), 1938, 1938. First Edition. One of thirty copies signed by the author as ÒBachaus.Ó A lampoon of a scholarly dissertation, ostensibly regarding the papers found in the smallest room in the house (or, in the ÒbachausÓ), from tree leaves to gilt papers, setting forth Ò.the gradual refinement of our coarse forbears.Ó Original cloth; cover label glue-stained and with some printed lettering offset onto the surface; some of the samples have glue stains and are offset onto the opposite pages; small spot on the first few leaves; about fine in what little remains of the original slipcase. The amusing ÒagreementÓ (not completed) regarding the keepsake is laid in. Rogers, one of the most celebrated and successful book designers and typographers, a leading scholar of the field, indulged himself with parody at the expense of himself and his colleagues.
