A split image of marching soldiers, in gilt, spans the spines in their case. Planned by Eugene M. Ettenberg, the text was printed by Case, Lockwood & Brainard using Linotype Janson, Palatino semi-bold, Columna, and Open Roman and Greek capitals. Numbered copy 733 of 2000 signed at the colophon by the illustrator. Both the prospectus and the appropriate Club newsletter are laid in. 4to (28 cm; 11.125"). 2 vols.
