The Colophon: A Book Collector's Quarterly (Limited Edition, 36 volumes, with TLS from the editor)
Self published, New York 1940 - Limited Edition. Octavo and Quarto, printed paper boards. Present is the David B. Milne drypoint illustration, SIGNED, in Part Five, and the 1932 Colophon Announcement brochure. From the collection of noted bibliophile Ruth Helen Kaufmann, with her bookplate present in several issues, as well as five letters from Elmer Adler, a contributing editor, discussing specific editions of the Colophon and related subscriber agenda. All letters are typed on the publisher's stationery and signed by Adler in holograph ink, dates ranging from 1930 to 1934. One letter informs Kaufmann of Rockwell Kent and his cost for customized bookplates ($250), as well as where he can be found ("almost anywhere with a pretty girl around.Ausable Forks, New York").Nearly complete run of a quarterly publication devoted entirely to bookmaking, printing, typography, bibliography, and collectable books of all kinds. The Colophon ran from 1930 to 1950, and featured contributions from prolific writers, artists, scholars, and print makers. Included are parts one through twenty (1930-1935), generally referred to as "The Original Series"; all twelve volumes of "The New Series" (Summer 1935 through Autumn 1938); and four volumes of the "New Graphic Series" (1939-1940). Very Good plus overall lacking dust jackets, with moderate toning, and few with spine leans, and light rubbing at the extremities. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
