About This Item

San Francisco: The Book-Lover, 1902. First printing. Hardcover. Very Good. First 10 issues of this important bibliophilic journal, 1899-1902, each issue in its deluxe large paper issue limited to either 100 or 92 numbered copies. Large 4to (12 x 9.5 inches), each issue with color covers on heavier paper, bound into two volumes in red cloth with leather gilt spine labels (ca. 1920s rebinding). Each issue is ca. 125 pp, printed on good laid paper, often with illustrations. The original covers are bound in. The contents include much on book collecting, bibliography, auction sales, recent acquisitions by libraries, theories of collecting, essays on collectable authors, essays on publishers and printings, concentrating on some of the recent Arts and Crafts and Pre-Raphaelite printers such as William Morris and his Kelmscott Press, and including verse and occasional literary pieces by some of the reputable authors of the time. RARE in this deluxe format. Oddly the two volumes contain issues 1 to 4 plus 10 in one volume and 5-9 in the other volume. Go figure! With the bookplates in each of Rachel McMasters Miller Hunt as well as the bookplates of Carnegie Mellon University Library (withdrawn stamp on bookplates). Rachel McMasters Miller Hunt: born in Turtle Creek, near Pittsburgh, in 1882, she had a lifelong fascination with book collecting and book binding, as well as a fascination with botanical illustration. Her marriage in 1913 to Roy Hunt, who would later become the chairman of Alcoa, gave her the means to expand her collecting and bookbinding interests, and this culminated in her founding the Hunt Botanical Library which shares the same building as Carnegie Mellon's Hunt Library. She also was a devoted and skilled book binder, and we have little doubt that this is one of her bindings. The Hunt Botanical Library hosted annual exhibitions of fine bookbindings. Hunt died in 1963.
