Description

Here is a nice copy of “The Story of a Passion”, a Roycrofters book by Irving Bacheller. 14 numbered pages, printed by the Roycrofters in East Aurora, New York in 1901. The stunning title page and chapter heads are hand-illumined by Ella Stackman (Clackman?), signed in the back. The red suede binding is also lovely. Top edge gilt and with heavy Roycroft watermarked paper.

Book is in very good condition. Suede is still beautiful and bright. Hinges intact, nice red moire endpapers, silk bookmark detached but present. Pages very clean except for former bookseller’s pencil notations on front endpaper. A nice addition to your own collection, or gift for a friend.
