Order Nr. 140042

Limited to 300 copies designed by Bruce Rogers (Warde 64). Private bookplate of Lester Douglas on front pastedown. Spine slightly faded. Light wear to spine ends and corners, else a fine copy. Printed in Brimmer type. Portrait frontispiece. A very scarce book.

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).
