First edition, limited to 2000 copies; this is one of the paper bound copies. Bruce Rogers is without doubt the most important figure in 20th-century American bookmaking.

The biography of Rogers has been written by Joseph Blumenthal, an acknowledged expert in the field. Designed and printed at the press of W. Thomas Taylor with plates produced at The Press of A. Colish. Has 57 plates printed with a number in two colors. Seller Inventory # 61081
