One of 200 copies printed on Batchelor's handmade paper in modified Centaur type. This copy includes the limitation leaf, which is often missing.

It will long remain as the finest of all presentations of the King James Version." (The Typographic Book, p. 56). Elsewhere, Blumenthal called the Oxford Bible "the most important printed book of the twentieth century" (Art of the Printed Book, pp. 50-1).

Item Description: Bruce Rogers, Wilfred Merton & Emery Walker, London, 1932. Leather. Book Condition: Fine. First Edition. A rare opportunity to see a fine copy of this glorious edition of T.E. Lawrence's translation of the Odyssey, This is Bruce Rogers copy with his bookplate and a presentation inscription signed by Bruce Rogers Bound in full black leather that is in a fine unmarked condition and contained in the very good original black slipcase, itself protected in a worn box. Printed on grey paper, watermarked with a Greek galley and printed with aromatic ink that still holds the spicy aroma. The title page and each chapter heading has a roundel of gold leaf printed with a Greek vase design, the printing of these took seven separate impressions and is a wonderful feature of the book. In Joseph Blumenthal's "Bruce Rogers. A Life in Letters," Blumenthal describes this volume; "I believe the Bruce Rogers Odyssey is indisputably amongst the most beautiful books ever produced. It is difficult to describe a work of genius . In the Odyssey without tricks or accessory decoration, with a classic austerity akin to the timeless proportions of the Parthenon, with only type and paper and ink, with consummate skill, Rogers created a masterpiece". Here indeed is a fine copy of this master work, without doubt one of the most handsome volumes in the Lawrence cannon. As an added bonus the Lawrence translation is still most readable, so the volume offered combines printing excellence with a practical and readable text. Limited to 530 copies. An exceptional copy of this fine landmark volume. Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" Tall. Signed by Bruce Rogers. Limiited Edition. Bookseller Inventory # 048779

Item Description: (Cambridge, Riverside Press, 1906)., 1906. 11 1/2 x 17 1/2. xxxiv double-column pages. Illustrated with seven "stained glass windows" richly colored by hand. Quarter vellum & boards decorated with a fleur-de-lis pattern, vellum tips. Minor faults to binding: small bump to spine base, light wear bottom edges, small white spot to one top edge, rear board faded top quarter. Small, contemporary booksellerâs label on rear pastedown. A very good association copy, inscribed to Major W. Van R. Whitall. His small morocco booklabel has offset onto a part of the inscription. Inscribed "Dear Whitall, The pattern on the cover of this book was taken from a wall decoration in the Crypt at Chartres, and the illustrations from the Charlemagne window, Bruce Rogers." No. 53 of 220 copies on American handmade paper. Set in French lettre bâtarde & civilità types and hand printed in black, red, blue, and golden brown; opening initial printed in gold. Rogers had a hand--literally--in the binding: to achieve a mellow, antique effect, he rubbed a red paste wash over the printed paper. From the over 400 books he designed, Rogers selected (when asked in an interview) 30 which he considered totally successful. This is one of the "BR 30." American Art Association auctioned Whitall's library in 1927. Lots 1014 to 1087 were headed "Important Series of Books Designed by Bruce Rogers." This copy, illustrated in the auction catalogue, brought $300. The Riverside Press was the printing department of Houghton, Mifflin publishing company. The âDepartment of Special Bookmakingâ was Bruce Rogersâ domain. George Mifflin was so proud of the âRoland,â he sent a copy to Theodore Roosevelt at the White House. The President was so impressed, he visited the Riverside Press to view Rogersâ other special editions. Roosevelt wrote to Mifflin âI am not an expert on these matters, but comparing that âSong of Rolandâ with other modern printing (notably with a very handsome edition of a great German book I have) it seemed to me far ahead, and almost like some of the very beautiful printing of books at the end of the Fifteenth Century.âWarde *71.

Item Description: Way & Williams,, Chicago:, 1896. First edition.. [FICTION: WOMEN: SHORT STORIES]. PEATTIE, Elia W. A MOUNTAIN WOMAN [Short Stories] by Elia W. Peattie. Twelvemo, blue cloth decorated in gilt (with front and rear covers designed by Bruce Rogers) [Haas. Bruce Rogers 9], pp. [x], 251, top edge gilt. Illustrated throughout by noted political cartoonist, Homer Davenport, with twelve original pencil drawings (most of which are finely executed full-page drawings, occupying blank leaves), and inscribed by him in 1904. The second drawing (on verso of half-title page) is a caricature of an African-American woman, in full length, in profile (the drawing measures circa 6 by 4 inches, and occupies the bulk of the blank leaf opposite the title page). This drawing is inscribed by Homer Davenport, adjacent the drawing: "Yours very truly/ Homer Davenport/ Feb 28th, 1904." Caption in pencil holograph: "from the Mountain of Tenn. The changing of a dull day to sunshine." Another drawing is a full-page self-portrait (from the chest up, in profile), signed in full beneath: "Homer Davenport." The subjects of the other drawings, most of which are full-page, include caricatures of African-American and Asian figures, a portrait of an unnamed woman (similar in style to his self-portrait), a caricature of two figures, a drawing of a horse (from the neck up, in profile, with ornate bridal), inscribed beneath: "Sultan, a present from his [word?] majesty. [words?]" [Davenport was a pioneer in the breeding of Arabian horses, and was responsible for bringing some of the earliest desert bred Arabian horses to America]. Also inscribed on the dedication leaf, in pencil (presumably in the hand of Elia W. Peattie?): "To my Best Friend, May 31, 1902" [the book's printed dedication states: "To My Best Friend, and kindest Critic, My Husband"]. Illustrated with twelve original finely executed pencil drawings by noted political cartoonist, Homer Davenport, two of which are inscribed and signed by him. Homer Davenport (1867-1912) was an influential editorial cartoonist/political caricaturist. He was best known for his satirical drawings and support of Progressive Era politics. His work appeared in the San Francisco Examiner, San Francisco Chronicle, and the New York Evening Journal. His caricatures of political figures he considered corrupt, such as U.S. Senator Mark Hanna, lead to an unsuccessful attempt to pass anti-cartoon legislation in the New York State Senate. Early ink signature of Olive B. Sarre on front flyleaf, and with her later ink inscription beneath: "These drawings were done by Homer Davenport on a train between New York & Buffalo, in 1904. O.B.S. April, 1953" [Olive Saare and Frank Seaman founded the Yama Farms Inn, an exclusive Catskills Resort, in Napanoch, N.Y., known to have been frequented by some of the most important and influential figures of the 20th century, including John D. Rockefeller, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, John Burroughs et al.].Cloth is rubbed on spine, with tiny tear at crown, faint soil mark on front cover, title page has early, neat glue mend at inner hinge (where over-opened), with two early cello-tape mends on verso of dedication leaf (affixed to foreword leaf), else a very good copy.

Item Description: Cleveland and New York, The World Publishing Company, 1949. Large folio. Red, goldstamped cloth. Half-title, design title page, dedication, to the Reader. xxii, list of contents. pp. 1-941. With New Testament title page, colophon page. Printed in an edition of 975 copies. A beautiful, uncut copy. With: TARG, WILLIAM. The Making of the Bruce Rogers World Bible. Cleveland and New York, The World Publishing Company, 1949. 4to. Red goldstamped cloth. 18 pp., some plates in black and white and 8 pages with decorations and initials for the World Bible. Of the 1875 copies printed, 500 were for sale. This is number 521. Work on the Bruce Rogers World Bible lasted over four years. In 1945 The World Publishing Company was engaged in refurbishing the format of its extensive list of Bibles and were forcibly struck anew by something that had only vaguely disturbed them in the past - the lack of a contemporary American folio Bible of noble proportions and in the great Bible tradition and they resolved to remedy this lack. Bruce Rogers, who had already designed the Oxford Lectern Bible was chosen for the project and his choice of type was one of Fred Goudy's lesser-used but most beautiful creations, the face Newstyle. But that had previously been cut only in the 18-point size for hand composition. The great length of the book called for machine composition, and the close fitting required by such work made it necessary for many of the characters to be redesigned. Thus Goudy's Newstyle, slightly modified by Bruce Rogers with Mr. Goudy's permission for the Bruce Rogers World Bible, was re-issued for machine composition and renamed Goudy Bible. In the prospectus to the work Bruce Rogers explains the decorative treatment of the book: "The first edition of the King James Bible in 1611 was lavishly decorated with fairly good woodcuts. The new World Bible, in its turn, will be fittingly decorated, with headings to the sixty-six books, initial letters, and a bordered title page made up from type ornaments or flowers. These, together with the type selected, are intended to give a slightly oriental flavor to the volume, indicative of the Syriac and Hebrew sources of the text on which the King James translators based their classic version." A truly magnificent work. Bookseller Inventory # 100931

Item Description: NY, September 1927., 1927. Rogers drew & lettered the proposed title page in black & green. He designed 4 different printed versions of double spread pages 14 and 15 (one of them printed in two colors). Previously mounted, the pages have old glue stains on the versos; dampstain at base of gutters. Laid into in a homemade marbled folder. In his 1 typed and 2 autograph letters, Rogers sounds at his wit's end and exasperated with Friede. Friede is obviously trying to pare costs.BR tells him that replacing the second color with a second size type will cost just as much--in labor--as BR's original proposal. It has taken BR some time to come up with a satisfactory setting in one color, "but at last [September 21] I send you the result. They seem to me clear and understandable, though I do not think them as good as the other scheme would have been." On September 27th BR sends the 3rd 4th layouts, which "I hope may prove satisfactory, as I have about exhausted the possibilities on this line." he goes on to discuss cost-saving changes to the binding and the final cost per copy. In the end, BR and Rudge did not receive the commission. Strange Interlude was designed by S. A. Jacobs and printed by Van Rees Press. Bookseller Inventory # 17738

Each volume includes the original prospectus, laid in (save for a few titles, which were not issued with prospectus). Lacking the wax paper dust jackets. However, overall a very near fine set, crisp, charp, and tight, with only the most gentle fading to the cream cloth spines in general (see images and feel free to request more). Top edge gilt, uncut pages. Henry the Fifth has a small ding to the top of the text block, else as nice as the other volumes. Two volume Poems in slipcase, as issued (slipcase is good or better with some wear at the extremities, including to the label). Each volume is hand-numbered 958 (out of 1,950 copies printed), including the poetry set, which is signed by Bruce Rogers. Though the collector's dream is or course to find a set with complete wax paper dust jackets and slipcases, this is an excellent substitute, considering the mildness of the spine fading, sharp square corners, and still-present prospectuses.

Item Description: New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1940, 1940. Arthur Rackham's "Wind in the Willows"[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. GRAHAME, Kenneth. The Wind in the Willows. With an Introduction by A.A. Milne & Illustrations by Arthur Rackham. New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1940.Limited to 2,020 numbered copies (this copy being No. 1315), signed by the designer, Bruce Rogers. Quarto (11 3/8 x 8 1/8 inches; 289 x 207 mm.). [2], 244, [2] pp. Sixteen mounted color plates. "Printed at the Walpole Printing Office?The edition was designed by and printed under the supervision of Bruce Rogers" (Colophon).Original quarter pale yellow buckram over patterned paper boards. Spine lettered in gilt. Top edge gilt, others uncut. A very fine, partially uncut copy. In the original publisher's olive green cardboard slipcase."The Wind in the Willows was not published in England until 1950, but it found two publishers, one for a de luxe edition (The Limited Editions Club, New York) and one for a trade edition (The Heritage Press, New York) in the United States posthumously in the year following Rackham's death. The book is a gentle delight, presenting sixteen illustrations which in no way fight with the more famous imaginative world created by Shepherd, although if Shepherd had not preceded him, then Rackham might have anthropomorphized his creatures even more. Several of the plates are delightful: the 'Golden Day when the three heroes walked by the Caravan, Mole leading a happy horse'; the placid Rat handing a hamper to put into a boat, a plate famous among Rackham lovers because it was the boat for which Rackham forgot to draw the oars, an omission which some see as significant in view of the artist's imminent death. Perhaps the most interesting picture is the frontispiece, which depicts the egocentric Toad levelled to the drab clothes of a no-pocket washerwoman, hopping about permissively, totally unequipped for the real contest. In the real world of people, like all egoists, animal or human, he is alien, and it is a typical piece of Rackhamerie that we should see two children laughing at the glum toad, not because he is a toad, but because he is obviously pretending to be something else.It is with a sense of a serious loss that one turns to the imprint of the de luxe edition in search of the familiar Rackham signature, and finds not the careful hand of Rackham, but that of the designer Bruce Rogers, who saw the book and Rackham's pictures through the press." (Gettings, Arthur Rackham. Pp. 168-169)."This was the final book Arthur Rackham illustrated before his death in 1939" (Riall, pp. 197-198).Bruce Rogers (1870 - 1957) was an American typographer and type designer, acclaimed by some as among the greatest book designers of the twentieth century. Rogers was known for his "classical" style of design, rejecting modernism, never using asymmetrical arrangements, rarely using sans serif type faces, favoring stolid roman faces such as Caslon and his own Centaur.

Item Description: No place of publication: privately printed (The Columbiad Club), 1938, 1938. First Edition. One of thirty copies signed by the author as ÒBachaus.Ó A lampoon of a scholarly dissertation, ostensibly regarding the papers found in the smallest room in the house (or, in the ÒbachausÓ), from tree leaves to gilt papers, setting forth Ò.the gradual refinement of our coarse forbears.Ó Original cloth; cover label glue-stained and with some printed lettering offset onto the surface; some of the samples have glue stains and are offset onto the opposite pages; small spot on the first few leaves; about fine in what little remains of the original slipcase. The amusing ÒagreementÓ (not completed) regarding the keepsake is laid in. Rogers, one of the most celebrated and successful book designers and typographers, a leading scholar of the field, indulged himself with parody at the expense of himself and his colleagues.
