Photogravures From The Roycrofters

Printed by the Roycroft Press, Undated.

This folder/envelope measures 11 5/8" x 8 3/4" It was as can be seen printed vertically on the front and horizontally on the back. The designs have all the hallmarks of Dard Hunter but are unsigned. The envelope or folder was used to hold various photogravures by Gaspard that were used in the Little Journeys series and also in the Complete Works of Elbert Hubbard. The number of photogravures contained in the envelope have varied from 6 to 7 in the examples I have seen. One of these just sold on eBay on the 27th of Feb 2005 for over $72.00 and only had 3 of the pictures and was also missing the picture of the Roycroft Campus on the front cover. The names of the people pictured are written in pencil on the back of each photogravure. The top 6 photogravures are from one set. The bottom 6 photogravures from another. One photgravure was not added to the first set to accommodate the page layout and that was a photogravure of Froebel.
