§ This is number 6 of ten copies on vellum. Printed on the occasion of the visit of George W. Jones and William Edwin Rudge to the Roxburghe Club of San Francisco, October 29, 1930. George W. Jones (1860-1942) was one of the most respected and celebrated fine printers of his generation. In 1921 he was appointed printing adviser to the British arm of the Linotype organization and he became directly responsible for the creation of a number of distinguished typefaces for linecasting, including Granjon, Estienne, Baskerville and Georgian. William Edwin Rudge, printer and publisher of the early 20th century, is best known perhaps for his association with Bruce Rogers. Item #122726
