12mo. Wrappers, presentation envelope. (4pp). Illustration. On the occasion of the 500th anniversary of Gutenberg's achievement and the issuance of a U.S. three-cent stamp honoring the same, World Publishing issued this little commemorative leaflet designed by Bruce Rogers -- and coincidentally touting their folio edition of the Bible, likewise designed by Bruce Rogers. Fine/very good. Leaflet is pristine, while presentation envelope bears expected light wear and soiling, having gone through the mail. The printed presentation envelope bears the aforementioned Gutenberg stamp and is a First Day Cover to boot, with appropriate 30 September 1952 D.C. cancellation. The addressee is Ralph G. Newman, founder of Chicago's famed Abraham Lincoln Book Shop. Bookseller Inventory # 10812
