A Dog of Flanders

by OUIDA, 1906
John Grabau Binding

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. The edition above is an undocumented full Levant unlimited edition printed or Roycroft watermarked paper showing the Roycroft script and the Roycroft orb watermarks. 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. John Grabau seemed to really like this design for his covers. He did at least 2 other books with a variant on the design above and it was also shown on the cover of a Roycroft catalog. The other books were Joaquin Miller and Contemplations and the Roycroft catalog was The Book of the Roycrofters.
