About this Item: Kelmscott Press, Hammersmith, 1893. 146 x 108 mm. (5 3/4 x 4 1/4"). 1 p.l., 68 pp. ONE OF 1,500 COPIES on paper (and 45 on vellum.). Original holland-backed blue paper boards. Woodcut initials and small woodcut decorations in the text. Headlines and sidenotes printed in red. Front pastedown with bookplate of J. Harsen Purdy. Peterson A-18; Sparling 18; Forman 146; Tomkinson, p. 112. AN EXTREMELY FINE COPY, the binding remarkably clean, and the text showing no signs of use. This little book was our private press' least private work. It was printed in public as a "moving exhibit" during the 1893 Arts and Crafts Exhibition held in the New Gallery, becoming one of the exposition's most popular attractions. The text was taken from Morris' lecture before the Crafts Exhibition Society in 1889. According to Sparling, this is the first appearance of the four-line initials used here and the first book Morris printed in the sextodecimo format. Our copy has "Eyk" for "Eyck" on page 45, apparently indicating the first state of the text. A descendant of one of Manhattan's oldest families, former owner J. Harsen Purdy was a member of the Grolier Club for 32 years. This little book was our private press' least private work.

Inscribed on the date of publication by Sydney Cockerell, presented to Thomas Matthews Rooke - a watercolour artist who worked for both Burne-Jones and Cockerell, and the father of wood-engraver Noel Rooke: 'T.M.R. from S.C.C., Oct. 21, 1893'. With 'gilds' in margin of p. 41 and 'Van Eyk' on p. 45. [With:] (Yellow Barn Press.) WALSDORF (Jack) Elbert Hubbard: William Morris's Greatest Imitator. Council Bluffs, 1999, FIRST EDITION, AUTHOR'S COPY (inscribed to him at the foot of the colophon), 8/34 COPIES (from an edition of 150 copies) printed on Frankfurt cream paper, title-page printed within double red line border and with vignette illustration by Jack Sears, 2 tinted portait frontispieces, original leaves from the Kelmscott 'Gothic Architecture' (pp. 57-8) and the Roycroft 'Rip Van Winkle' (pp. 43-4) tipped in as well as reproductions of promotional pieces from the two presses, pp. ix, 24, 8vo, original Japanese linen with a floral design, printed label to upper board and backstrip, edges untrimmed, original prospectus laid in, fine [and:] (Roycroft Press.)

East Aurora, 1905, FIRST EDITION, printed in red and black with initials and title-page design by Dard Hunter, pp. xviii, 48, foolscap 8vo, original green suede with overhanging edges, stamped in dark green to upper board, t.e.g., others untrimmed, bookplate of C. Leslie Allen and Viola Allen to front pastedown, inscribed by Elbert Hubbard to the latter (a notable actress) on the flyleaf, very good The three volumes together in tiered box of Japanese linen to match the monograph. An intriguing set, comprising outstanding presentation copies of the two source-texts for tipped-in original leaves in the monograph - which is here present as the author's own copy, an inscription to him from printer Neil Shaver at the foot of the colophon; essentially, therefore, an 'extra-illustrated' and unique copy of the monograph, but with a slight imbalance to the set that has presented a challenge to the coherence of their cataloguing. Leaving that aside, this is a compelling group and appropriate to its latter provenance. (Peterson A18; Sparling 18). Seller Inventory # 58466
