The Complete Writings. Author's Edition.
New York: The Roycroft Shop, [1914] - 20 volumes, quarto. Original brown half morocco, titles and wreath design to spines gilt, geometrical decoration to spine and corners in dark brown, tan sides and endpapers, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. An excellent set. Frontispieces, headpieces and illustrations throughout. The Author's Edition, one of a limited edition of 1000 sets, signed "Elbert Hubbard" on the limitation leaf (though these signatures were apparently done by Hubbard's assistants). Roycroft was a handicraft community founded in East Aurora, N.Y. about 1895 by Elbert Hubbard, who was influenced by the English Arts and Crafts movement. Hubbard started the Roycroft Press in order to publish a series of biographical sketches he had written called "Little Journeys." These form the first volume of this collected edition. Hubbard quickly became both popular and famous and collected a community of craftspeople around him in Aurora. Roycroft craftspeople were skilled metal smiths, leather smiths, and bookbinders. Today, items that were produced by the Roycrofters are highly sought after by collectors.
