Order Nr. 139741

Limited to 300 numbered copies designed by Bruce Rogers. Warde 63. The slightest hint of wear, else a near fine copy. Printed in Caslon type.

The typography is by the notable American book designer Bruce Rogers (1870-1957), who "was appreciated in his lifetime. In addition to several honorary degrees, in 1948 he was awarded a gold medal from the American Academy of Arts and Letters for distinction in the graphic arts. Over decades of accomplishment in which he designed approximately 500 books... Rogers literally defined the profession of book designing in the United States" (ANB).
