Here is an interesting Roycroft Motto Book, with an entertaining cover designed by WW Denslow who illustrated the Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Signed with Denslow’s seahorse logo in the corner. It is a small softcover book, just 32 pages, with words of wisdom favored by Elbert Hubbard and “assisted at times be Solomon, Shakespeare, Benjamin Franklin”, etc. Copyright 1917. The cover design is an earlier Denslow work showing Hubbard toiling in the garden with the question (which many wondered), “Is He Sincere?”
This little book is in near very good condition, with light wear to cover paper overlapping edges including one 1/4″ closed tear, and private library owner’s stamp on front endpaper. Tight binding. One of the hardest Motto Books to find!
