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). Four-page prospectus in the seldom-seen Oxford Press wrapper is laid in. The copy has been handsomely bound in full red morocco by the Bookends Bindery. The design features circular lettering on the upper covers of each volume, bearing scriptural verse relevant to each book.

Item Description: Bruce Rogers, Wilfred Merton & Emery Walker, 1932. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. Limited Edition. The Odyssey of Homer, Limited First Edition of 530 copies only (of which 30 were not for sale), translated by T. E. Lawrence (Colonel T. E. Lawrence, Airman Shaw, T.E. Shaw), printed by Emery Walker, Wilfred Merton, and Bruce Rogers, in London, 1932. Lawrence, at the time, was so self-conscious as an author and translator, that he did not want to take credit for his 4-year long Opus Magnum. He commented, however: ".I have spent almost as long as Odysseus and travelled further.").The book printed with scented inks on handmade watermarked paper (watermark with design of an Ancient Greek vessel), illustrated by B. Rogers with gold-and-black roundels in a Greek style, stamped in 24K gold, the text lettering in Rogers Centaur type, the binding of black Niger morocco, with titled spine and seven tooled bands. Binding by W.H. Smith. The book is presented in a modern dark gray slipcase. Fine copy internally with only slight age spotting to the deckled edges (typical to works printed on handmade paper with rough-cut edges), the book appears unread. Some slight unavoidable evidence of age, stated for the sake of accuracy, a beautiful copy. A superb copy of one of 20th Century's most moving and critically acclaimed works both in literature, art and fine press. A must-have for the collector of classics and rare limited editions. Further photos available upon request. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-1479595937917

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: 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.

"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.
