SCHANILEC, Gaylord. AUCHINCLOSS, Kenneth. ~ New York Revisited.
New York The Grolier Club 2002
11 colour wood engravings by Gaylord Schanilec. One of 200 copies signed by the artist and author, there were also 50 specials with a portfolio of wood engravings by Ruzicka printed for the club in 1915. Printed in 12 point Monotype Emerson. Tall thin 4to., bound at the Campbell-Logan Bindery in original grey silk covered boards with black and gilt spine label, housed in a grey silk covered slipcase. As new apart from one small mark to the back of the slipcase. Slight water mark in top left hand corner of upper cover.
A great tribute to New York and New Yorkers. The book was intended as a modern day reply to a Grolier Club book on New York printed in 1915 with colour woodengravings by Rudolph Ruzicka, however, it took on a new importance as its publication coincided with the attack on New York in September 2001. A truly beautiful book printed by Gaylord Schanilec at his press in Wisconsin, Midnight Paper Sales.
