About this Item

Originally published 1928, offered with the supplementary volume A Check-List of the Americana Collection of Herschel V. Jones (orig. published 1938); together, 3 volumes, small folio, 300 fine illustrations of title-pp., covers, woodcuts, etc.; generally a fine set in publisher's full brown buckram, gilt lettering on spine. Jones (1861-1928) served as publisher of the Minneapolis Journal from 1908 and, as these vols. attest, was a sagacious collector of Americana. Although he began selling his collection at auction in 1916, his personal library was held after his death until 1939 when it was sold to the dealer Rosenbach and then dispersed. (See American Book Collectors). Bookseller Inventory # 29240
