About this Item

ELLIS, ROWLAND C. Portfolio of twenty fine proof impressions of woodcuts of Dutch colonial houses in Bergen, Passaic, and Somerset Counties, each on a full 14 x 11 inch sheet, and each signed in pencil by Ellis. Enclosed in the original cloth-backed portfolio with cloth ties. Woodcuts fine, portfolio dust-soiled with spine very darkened. In 1937 the New Jersey book collectors' club, the Carteret Book Club, published Rowland C. Ellis' Colonial Dutch Houses in New Jersey. Twenty Wood Engravings, a handsome book printed by Monroe F. Dreher of Newark and limited to 150 copies. The book contained twenty woodcuts by Ellis of early New Jersey Dutch houses, with text by Newark architect James O. Betelle. Also available to members, in a very limited edition and probably at a very substantial price (no documentation has been found) was a complete suite of the Ellis woodcuts, pulled as proof impressions on large paper, each signed in full by Ellis. The prints were housed in a portfolio bound to match the printed book. In over 40 years of specializing in New Jerseyana, this is only the third copy of the portfolio that we have offered for sale.
