About this Item

6.75 x 10.5 inches. hardcover, slipcase. 424 pages. In 1959 at the Grolier Club's 75th anniversary, Grolier 75, a volume of biographical sketches of seventy-five former members written by seventy-five current members, was published. This book proved to be very valuable to the literature of the book world through its presented facts and life stories. Grolier 2000 was published as a sequel to Grolier 75, extending the biographical records begun forty-one years ago. This book presents informative and expressive stories of past Grolier Club members, now deceased, who were distinguished lovers of manuscripts, prints, drawings, and photographs. The Grolier Club has always welcomed membership to anyone interested in all aspects of the book including design, illustration, printing, binding, publishing or selling. This book covers all of these areas, including biographies of designers and printers such as Altschul and Grabhorn, and Heckscher and Hugo, illustrators such as Pennell, Ruzicka, and Oenslager, and publishers such as Kennerley, Knopf, and Sadleir. Overall, the book contains biographies of 119 Grolier Club members. It is beautifully designed and kept in a slipcase. The book was printed under the direction of Jerry Kelly by E.H. Roberts.
