Elbert Hubbard and His Work

by Albert Lane, 1901
Blanchard Press, Worcester Mass

#15 of 25

This book measures 11 1/4" x 8" and has 153. The binding, although unsigned, has the appearance of John Grabau's work. Grabau was a binder at the Roycroft from 1902 to 1905. He later founded the Gerome Bindery. This book was printed by the Blanchard Press in Worcester Mass and was a presentation copy from Mr. Blanchard to Leon Leander. The book was illumined by  from Louis B. Coley and bound in tolled full Levant. I wish this book was signed as I can not with certainty attribute it to Grabau but the look and time period fit.
