Gifts from The Roycroft Shops
This catalogue measures 7 1/2" x 5 1/4" and has 28 pages. This catalog is undated but the enclosed letter is dated 1932.
The catalog features hand-hammered copper bookends, pen trays, letter openers, blotter corners, paper knives, vases, bowls, candlesticks, , and so on. Among the books it advertises the Compete Writings, Abe Lincoln & Nancy Hanks, Bumpsies the Story of the Golf Ball Kids, an interesting variant of Loyalty in Business (using the Pig Pen Pete covers), a bunch of suede bindings, and, perhaps most interestingly, some 3/4 Levant vellum books that say they were signed by Hubbard. THese must be left overs that were still for sale 15 or 20 years after Hubbard's death.
