A rare American arts & crafts book, as only about 85 copies (of the 220 printed) were distributed before the fire which destroyed the Press in January 1908. It was the third book begun at the press, in Park Ridge in 1903, but not completed until October 1905. Hand printed in Village type with double title, large initial in red & black, and border designed by Frederic Goudy; composition by Bertha Goudy. Kelmscott Press influence is very strong. OCLC locates 18 copies--none in MA, CT, or NJ.
