The Book of Thel.
San Francisco: The Book Club of California, 1930. 12mo, 9(22)pp. Decorated title-page and one full-page plate, by Julian Links. Original vellum, gilt title on front. Blue-gray slipcase with paper label. #60 of 300 copies printed at the Windsor Press. Rockwell Kent objected to this book. Kent posed a complaint against the illustrations in the volume, claiming they are inferior and plagiarizing his own work. From the letter: "I am sorry that it is not the policy of the Book Club to supervise more carefully the production of the books that appear within its imprint. I feel the book of Thel, irrespective of the plagiarism involved in the illustrations, has been very badly illustrated." PBA Galleries.
