Here is an unusual 3/4 leather binding of Elbert Hubbard’s Scrapbook, 228 pages of old-fashioned wisdom by Roycroft founder Elbert Hubbard. Copyright 1923, printed and made into a book by the Roycrofters, and distributed by Wm H Wise. The custom leather binding has black and brown leather with marbled boards with a scalloped gilt border, and gorgeous marbled endpapers. The binding isn’t signed.

The book is in good condition, with a few small rubs on the leather, and cracking of the front joint about 2″ up. The interior is in very good condition, with the text still retaining the hole marks from the old string binding, and former bookseller’s pencil price on front endpaper.
