The Revelation of Saint John the Divine
(Detroit): Cranbrook Press, 1901. Dürer, Albrecht. Quarto. (76)pp. One of 240 copies. Illustrated with sixteen full-page engravings by Dürer. Each page of text is surrounded by a wide ornamental border. George G. Booth, familiar with the work of the Kelmscott Press, sought to emulate the craftsmanship of William Morris both in style and workmanship. Roderick Cave contrasts the work that Booth produced with that of the Roycrofters, whose efforts were much more commercial. He notes Booth's impeccable taste and "irreproachable" reasons for establishing the Press. Bound in three-quarter vellum and boards, with single gilt-rule to covers. Some expected external rubbing and toning to vellum, else a fine, handsome copy. (Booth, p. 29; Cave, p. 160; Ransom 4).
