About this Item

Edited by John Whitson, Robert John and Henry Smith Williams. Complete 12-volume set. Small 4to. Textured green silk-like cloth with gilt spine lettering and oval portrait tipped to each front board surrounded by gilt. 302pp, (6pp); 302pp, (6pp); 303pp, (5pp); 302pp, (6pp); 302pp, (5pp); 303pp, (5pp); 302pp, (7pp); 303pp, (5pp); 303pp, (5pp); 302pp, (7pp); 303pp, (6pp); 308pp. Color tipped-in frontispieces, numerous tipped-in color plates. Very good overall. Mildly edgeworn, with spines uniformly sunned, though spine gilt lettering bright and nice. A tight, nice first edition of this massive compilation of Burbank's work -- this set with a decorative "Dedicated to" leaf tipped into the first volume, hand calligraphed in ornate Gothic to note that WILLIAM F. McCAUGHEY is an Honorary Member and boldly signed by this set's co-editor and Burbank Society secretary, Robert John. McCaughey (1893-1961) was a noted Chicago-area architect, a pupil of Frank Lloyd Wright and partner in a Park Ridge firm that, among other buildings, designed Park Ridge's celebrated Pickwick Theatre in the 1920s. Discreet ex-library, the only markings being a faint abrasion on each front pastedown and faint abrasion near the tail of each spine. Each inner flyleaf bears a large, pale green inkstamped ownership inkstamp of McCaughey's son. A lovely and scarce set, signed by one of its editors and from the collection of a noted architect.
