Christmas Interludes

Christmas Interludes

Condition: Fine/Poor

Montreal: Privately Printed, 1937. 3/4 red boards over burgandy leather with 5 raised bands and gold gilt printing and design to upper board and spine. Illustrations throughout. Crisp, pages. Owner's bookplate. The frontpiece is a fascimile of a page of the Guttenberg Bible. Pages are on very beautiful paper. Untrimmed side edges. STATED: 250 copies of this book were printed for Charles Corbitt Ronalds, by the Ronalds Company, December, 1937. On the inside back board written in light pencil in small print says: " Details of how this volume came to its home on the sun porch of 421 Field Point Road, Greenwich, Connecticut escape my memory. It fulfills its mission again at Christmas 1951, and we thank the makers. M.E." Sweet, isn't it. The Red Dust jacket is red with no text and is in poor shape as it is in two pieces. The book itself is fine and gift quality! I am always happy to send details photographs.. Half-Leather. Fine/Poor. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
