§ Number 780 of an edition of 940, printed on Roycroft hand-made paper, signed beneath the colophon by Elbert Hubbard and the illuminator Lucy Edwards. One of the most beautiful books made by the Roycrofters. Most of the copies on hand-made paper appear in a vellum binding; this copy may have been rebound by a highly skilled amateur, entirely in the tradition of the Roycroft community. Item #122953
