East Aurora: Roycroft Press, 1907.
First Edition. 8vo, (8 x 5 inches). Three-quarter plum morocco, marbled boards, superb gilt decorated spine. In the original publisher's box with paper label. A truly fine copy. Printed in red and black, printed on Japan Vellum. Frontispiece is a photo of Jerome Conner's bas-relief portrait of William Morris. The book features seven letters from Morris to Robert Thompson, dealing with political matters, and the Hubbard essay describes his visit to Kelmscott House and presents much of the aesthetic rationale which resulted in the formation of the Roycrofters. A handsome production, and the book as near to perfect as one could ever hope to find. "On a High Shelf," David Ogle, OB-134-07.
