by William Shakespeare, 1904
Note: #15 of 100 with a probable Kinder Binding.
This book measures 10 1/4" x 8" and has
147 pages. The text body is set in Scotch Roman printed on Japan Vellum for the
limited edition of 100 depicted above. The regular edition was printed on
Roycroft handmade paper and bound paper over boards with a suede spine. There
was also an unlimited edition variant bound in paper over boards with a leather
spine similar to the Miriam style binding, but definitely not Miriam. The limited edition is
illumined, numbered and signed in Elbert Hubbard's name. The binding on the book
above is believed to be by Louis Herman Kinder.
