A Message to Garcia and Thirteen Other Things

by Elbert Hubbard, 1901

This book measures 8 5/8" x 5 3/4" and has 166 pages plus colophon. The text body is set in Old Style Antique and  printed on on Boxmoor paper TEG. The regular editions of this book was bound in paper over boards with paper labels or full suede. The edition above bound in paper over boards with a suede spine is a variant not listed in McKenna. Interestingly the common full suede edition is not listed in McKenna either. Additionally, an edition of 450 copies had facsimile pages of the original manuscript inserted in the book, was hand illumined, and bound in full suede with a wallet edge. There was an edition of 50 printed on Imperial Japan Vellum, hand illumined and bound in 3/4 leather and marble board. There were other special order bindings available and I believe it was also bound in full Levant.
The regular edition of A Message to Garcia above is listed in the 1901 and 1902 catalogs for $2.00
