All copies were numbered and signed by or for Elbert Hubbard. There were 49 copies printed on Japan Vellum and hand illumined by Bertha Hubbard. The regular binding shown here was paper over boards. Some copies as seen above were made in 3/4  and full Levant. The regular copies were hand illuminated by the Roycroft workers. Please pardon my shaky photography.
