Sold: Roycroft Pastelles in Prose DARD HUNTER 1907 1st Wanamaker


Out of stock


Here is a gorgeous Roycroft booklet: A Dozen & Two Pastelles in Prose (Being Impressions of the Wanamaker Stores Written in as Many Moods), with a beautiful topiary cover design by famed designer Dard Hunter. Signed with Hunter’s tiny initials (DH), as is the title page. Original booklet copyrighted in 1907 by Elbert Hubbard. 8×6″, 47 pages printed in red and black.

Little book is in very good condition overall. Nice clean graphics, string binding still intact, but there are a couple small closed tears (~1/4″) along edge of cover. Inside pages nice and clean but a few do have small chips on edges where the pages were cut roughly. A hard-to-find title that has been reprinted, but this is the original.
