Description

Roycroft book entitled “Memories”, printed and bound by the Roycrofters, East Aurora, New York. This was original a blank book that was used for autographs, poetry or scrapbook by the cusomer, so each one is unique. Not in Ogle or McKenna, but listed in a 1920s Roycroft catalog as “Uniform with Guest Book, $3.00”. This copy especially poignant, as it describes (among other things), a long hand-printed Prince Charming story (I think a metaphor for their son/family), plus it is also a memorial volume to family member Charles Edmund Potholm who died–“he lay his life down for his brother”. With 38 pasted in family photos and some clippings. Dates 1928-1933. Some Danish in back as well.

In the typical suede binding, with corner chipping and binding likely glue repaired. Pages in good shape. Worth having in your collection as a rather unusual Roycroft curiosity in addition to the charming content.
