 A Message to Garcia

Printed in 1926

Bound in 1928 by Lorenz Schwartz

#2 of 495

Lorenz Schwartz was a Danish binder that worked at The Roycroft bindery from about 1907 to 1915, and again from 1928 to 1947. Schwartz learned his craft in Germany. He came to the United States in 1904 and worked for Otto Zahn in Memphis before joining The Roycroft. His books are signed with one of several variations of his monogram. His finest productions are masterpieces comparable in quality to Louis Herman Kinder's work.

Note: Folio Edition bound in full Levant by Lorenz Schwartz and housed in a full leather box with snaps. The folio features a reproduction of the original manuscript. We assume he executed this binding after his return to the bindery in 1928.
