About this Item

Interesting collection of uncommon ephemeral material from The Limited Editions Club, one of the 20th century's great "fine books for the middle classes" concerns. Some of the items here are from the Club's later livres d'artistes heyday; many describe the Club's mission and its processes; the Club's typical attention to typographic clarity and elegance is well displayed. The 29 letters, catalogues, and offprints gathered here are: Folded holiday card with Robert M. Hutchins quotation with decorative capital in green, yellow, and red; unsigned, undated.
