SAHLIN'S TYPOGRAPHY VOL 3 1920 VERY RARE ROYCROFT PORTFOLIO AXEL E. SAHLIN
1920. THIS IS COPY NUMBER 7, HAND DONE BY AXEL E. SAHLIN. SAHLIN WAS THE TYPOGRAPHER FOR THE ROYCROFT PRINT SHOP IN THIS PERIOD OF TIME. THESE PORTFOLIOS WERE SOLD BY SAHLIN TO COLLEAGUES AND OTHER PRINTERS, IN TODAY'S TERMS THEY COST A MONTH'S WAGES FOR MOST PEOPLE. THE PORTFOLIO CONSISTS OF 21 LEAVES OF ROYCROFT WORKS IN THAT PERIOD, STARTING WITH A PARCHMENT BOOKLET "INTRODUCING VOLUME 3 OF SAHLIN'S TYPOGRAPHY", SIGNED BY SAHLIN HIMSELF. EACH PAGE CONSISTS OF EXAMPLES OF ROYCROFT PRINTING OF THAT PERIOD, SOME INCREDIBLY ELABORATE. A FEW EXAMPLES OF WHICH INCLUDE: THE CHRISTMAS CARD FOR 1920 USED BY MR. AND MRS. SAHLIN AND SEVERAL OTHERS PRINTED FOR FRIENDS; RULES OF CONSERVATION FOR THOSE GUESTS DINING AT THE ROYCROFT INN; BROCHURES ON BOOKS BY ELBERT HUBBARD WHO WAS PRESIDENT OF THE ROYCROFT ORGANIZATION; A LEAFLET ADVERTISING THE HARVEY WHEEL, USED ON AUTOMOBILES OF THE PERIOD; A 50TH ANNIVERSARY DINNER PROGRAM OF THE MASONIC LODGE IN EAST AURORA NY; AND A LETTERHEAD FOR THE SANDERS TRADING COMPANY, INDIAN TRADERS IN SANDERS ARIZONA. ALL OF THESE DONE IN THE DISTINCTIVE PRINTING STYLE OF THE ROYCROFT PRINTERS. THIS PORTFOLIO HAS NEVER BEEN OFFERED FOR SALE; IT HAS BEEN IN MY COLLECTION FOR THE LAST 30 YEARS; I ACQUIRED IT FROM THE ESTATE OF A PERSONAL FRIEND OF SAHLIN'S. YOUR INQUIRIES ARE INVITED; WE WILL TRY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS TO THE BEST OF OUR ABILITY. (PS700) 25.00 SHIPPING PRIORITY REGISTERED WITHIN THE USA, NO INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING.
