The Holly Tree

by Charles Dickens, 1903

This book measures 8 1/2" x 5 5/8" and has 66 pages. The regular edition was printed on Boxmoor paper and bound in suede. Additionally there was an edition bound in 3/4 tooled leather and printed on Japan Vellum. Interestingly, McKenna's Bibliography of the Roycroft Press, notes only that a few were bound such and none had been examined. The press work was done by George Parker, with typography by Newell White and border design seen above on title page and elsewhere in the book designed by Samuel Warner.
