The Ward Ritchie Press and Anderson, Ritchie & Simon
Los Angeles: Anderson, Ritchie & Simon, 1961. 8vo, x, 156, (1, colophn)pp. Illustrated with color plates and color initials in the text. A fine copy, as new. Limited to 1000 copies in the trade edition (there were also 300 signed copies). In the year of 1929 when I hesitantly experimented with the printing of a few small booklets of poems, I never expected that years later I would be trying to remember some of the details about them while compiling a list of the printed items that had succeeded them at our Press. The Ward Ritchie Press, as a commercial venture, started in 1932 and twenty-five years later in 1957 we first thought of recording a list of the many things we had printed and some of the recollections of the books and the people that had become a part of our memory of those early years of printing. (from the Preface).
