Columbus, OH: The Champlin Press, 1915. Limited ed. Hardcover. Very Good. Columbus, OH: The Champlin Press, 1915. Limited ed. Very Good. No. 68 of 500 printed. Dark green cloth with gilt spine and cover titles and decorations, top edge gilt, 16 by 23.7 cm, frontis (engraved bookplate for the Leland Stanford Junior University), 482 (1) pp., over 300 illustrations and 16 mounted bookplates. Signed by H.P. Ward on the limitation page (faded but legible). Wear at the corners and head and tail of the spine, and the spine titles are lightly dulled. Engraved bookplate of Mary Eleanor Guthrie mounted on the front pastedown and bookplate for James Goode on the rear pastedown (a bit of heavy-handed glue has caused a hole to be torn in the center of the rear free endpaper – this does not affect the bookplate mounted on the recto of the endpaper). A rather stunning, and scarce, collection of university and related bookplates. Produced at a time when bookplates were widely used by colleges and institutions as a way to identify and dignify special collections, as well as libraries holding large collections of bookplates themselves. Beautifully and heavily illustrated. Includes a checklist of bookplate literature by Winward Prescott. Fuller, p. 109.
