    New York: The Grolier Club, 1999. hardcover. 5.5 x 8.5 inches. hardcover. 62 pages. Limited to 240 copies. The arms of Jean Grolier are extremely recognizable in book collecting. He used them on bindings, opening leafs, and other leafs of his texts. Now, visitors to the Grolier Club see Jean Grolier's arms in carved stone at the Street entrance, in plaster over the fireplace, and in various other places throughout the Club. This book has divided the Grolier arms into two categories: the Grolier arms used in publications and the arms used in ex libris. They are roughly grouped chronologically by date of original publication and each illustration is accompanied by a short explanation of when the device first appeared, and by whom it was designed. It contains a history of the arms of the Grolier Club since 1884, and Kit Currie provides a prefatory essay titled, "The Arms of Jean Grolier." The book includes 22 illustrations, many printed from the original blocks, with three tipped in bookplates. A preface by Eric Holzenberg, club publications, and club bookplates are also presented. It was written in Herman Zapf's Renaissance roman and italic types. Design and typography were by Jerry Kelly.
