About this Item

Cambridge: The Riverside Press, 1901. Octavo, hardcover, cloth-backed marbled boards. 210 pages. Limited to 500 copies designed by Bruce Rogers. An unopened copy in fine condition. Warde #23. '.At first glance the design of the book appeared unprepossessing, somewhat crude, and certainly not the 'fine printing' I aspired to. But after some scrutiny and study, this young typographer learned that Bruce Rogers, at about the same age, had skillfully combined nine different typefaces in this small volume, using several varieties, weights, and sizes of English blackletter and modern roman and italic fonts to produce, with wit complementing Thackeray's, a style reminiscent of the mid-nineteenth century, yet very much his own' (Andrew Hoyem, from 'BR Today: A Selection of His Books with Comments,' New York: The Grolier Club, 1982).
