About this Item

8vo. cloth, dust jacket. xvi, 303+(1) pages. First edition. This long-awaited biography brings to life the remarkable printer, politician and sage, Everett Johnson. Inspired by the work of Elbert Hubbard's Roycrofters, Johnson established the indomitable Press of Kells in Newark, Delaware. The fortress-like stone building that became home to the "Newark Post" still stands, and as of 1999, this lively paper celebrates its 90th year. For the next generation, through his books, newspaper articles, and public service, he struggled to champion a series of social causes and became known as the "Conscience of Delaware." This very readable book includes Robert Barnes' comprehensive bibliography of Johnson's works. This copy is signed by both authors on the title page. Bookseller Inventory # 121896
