by Theodora Goujaud De Wolf Colt, 1914

Notes: Written in honor of her son, Samuel Pomeroy Colt and published posthumously.
Custom binding by Lorenz Schwartz with the Colt family crest at the upper right.

This book measures 8 1/4" x 5 1/4" and has 231 pages. The text body is Scotch Roman and was printed in two colors on unidentified laid paper without watermark. This is a fine example of one of the Roycroft Press vanity printings with superb design. There were many binding types made, including modeled leather, 3/4 leather and full Levant. McKenna notes that this an example of Roycroft printing and binding at it best!
