Hubbard, Elbert
[Royrcroft Press- Presentation Copy] Song of Songs Which is Solomon
The Roycroft Printing Shop, 1896. First edition. Publisher's original beige cloth spine, gray boards. The rare first publication by Roycroft Press, #538 of 600 Copies, Presentation Copy: "For Elizabeth A. Harter, with the kindly greetings of Elbert Hubbard," written just below the hand-numbered limitation paragraph at front. Stark production with intricate initials, typeset in the tradition of the Venetian, as per colophon, "with no power save that of human muscle, by Harry P. Taber." Cloth with age-soiling, corners bumped, occasional light browntoning, but a nice copy of the scarce first Roycroft title, and as such, an early Presentation by its founder. [Attributes: First Edition]
Bookseller: Nudelman Rare Books (peartree_antiquary) [Seattle, Washington, United States]
