Typophiles, The
Barnacles From Many Bottoms: Scraped and Gathered for BR by The Typophiles
Typophiles, (NY), 1935. Octavo. One of 100 copies, privately printed as a tribute to Bruce Rogers on the occasion of a welcome home dinner in his honor on October 30, 1935. Some of the signatures are "An Open Letter" by Frederic W. Goudy and signed by him; an original wood engraving signed by Charles W. Smith; illustrations by Valenti Angelo and W. A. Dwiggins; and a five-page tribute by Christopher Morley written especially for this book, as well as the signature of Edward F. Stevens. Lacks the two-leaf signature from Richard Ellis, which arrived too late to be bound into most copies. In all, there are individual contributions from seven artists, fifteen writers, and twenty-six printers. Scant offsetting throughout, evidence of bookplate removal from front endpaper. Minimal wear to corners, else a near fine copy in black buckram stamped in gold with a B and R from Rogers' Tory typeface. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Bromer Booksellers, Inc., ABAA [Boston, MA, U.S.A.]
