#35 of 110 COPIES

This book measures 8" x 5 3/4" and has 90 pages. The text body is Scotch Roman and was printed in two colors on Roycroft hand-made watermarked paper for the regular edition which was bound in paper over boards. An edition of 110 was bound in paper over boards, suede, 3/4 Levant, or full Levant and printed on Japan Vellum. The edition of 110 was signed and numbered in Elbert Hubbard's name.

Harry Avery was among the first of Kinder's students, I've found very little information about his life. His particular forte as a binder was the use of inlays. Unlike Dick Wolfe in his book on Kinder and Dave Ogle in his forthcoming book on the Roycroft, On a High Shelf, I feel strongly that Avery's bindings are among the very best and most sophisticated produced at the Roycroft Shop. Notice the use of inlays in this binding.
