About this Item

SIGNE by author. 'Of this edition on Hand Made Paper there were printed and specially hand illumined nine hundred and forty copies, and this book is No.211'.Appears crisp, bright and tight. Some normal ageing around the corners, but minimal. Fine/no jacket as issue GREAT CONDITION, BEAUTIFUL COPY. Book Description: (New York, Roycroft 1900)., 1900. Elbert Hubbard, here writing in the guise of 'Fra Elbertus', was the president of the Roycrofters, a semi-communal society which became renowned as the leading Arts and Crafts press in the United States. Hubbard (1856-1914) had met William Morris in London in 1890, and, greatly impressed by him, set up his own press along the lines of Kelmscott. These two essays, the first a satire, Tagaste (an ancient Roman colony in what is now Algeria), a metaphor for New York, and the second a less obtuse criticism of capitalist society, typify the Roycrofters' scorn for everything factory-made, and for the cheapening of knowledge.
