 The Vagabond Trail

by Thomas Dreier, 1913
Bound by Lorenz Schwartz, published by The Griffith-Stillings Press.

This Danish binder worked at the Roycroft bindery from about 1907 to 1915 and again from 1928 to 1947. Schwartz learned his craft in Germany and came to the United States in 1904. Schwartz worked for Otto Zahn in Memphis before joining the Roycroft. His books are signed with one of several variations of his monogram. His finest productions are masterpieces, comparable in quality Louis Kinder's work. Most Roycroft bindings on Non-Roycroft editions that I've examined were done by Schwartz. The publisher was not Roycroft, but the binding is another fine example by master binder Lorenz Schwartz.
