About this Item

First edition of this example of Nash job printing: He printed 5000 copies for the PPIE Company. Nash was, of course, one of San Francisco's most important and artistically influential printers. He arrived there from Canada in 1895, saw his business destroyed by the 1906 earthquake and subsequent fire, but persevered and rose to national prominence. A collection of hundreds of letters of praise from prominent individuals who visited the Panama-Pacific International Exposition, the 1915 world's fair held in San Francisco; includes letters from Woodrow Wilson, William Howard Taft, Elihu Root, Franklin and Theodore Roosevelt, Samuel Gompers, and Thomas Edison. The text of each page is surrounded by red ink borders and a printed sidenote summarizes the theme of each letter. Prepared by James A. Barr and Joseph M. Cumming, and edited by Oscar H. Fernbach. With a preface, by Charles C. Moore. Includes index. 8vo. [8], 187, [1] pp. Nash Bibliography, p. 3. Contemporary quarter cloth over paper boards, covers pressure-stamped by a now-defunct library; soiled and spine with paper title-label (with small chip) and shelving label. Paper across hinges (inside) opening, but volume strong; one page with short tear at foremargin. Ex-library with bookplate and remnant of another, pencilling, card pocket, and perforation-stamps; ; dust-soiling but no real staining. A "lesser" copy for sure, but one that is not as abused as it may sound, and one that is priced according to its faults. Bookseller Inventory # 10082
