SCHANILEC, Gaylord. AUCHINCLOSS, Kenneth. ~ New York Revisited.
One of 50 special copies with portfolio of 8 original wood engravings by Ruzicka for his 1915 Grolier Club book with an extra suite of signed engravings by Schanilec, signed by the author and artist. 11 colour wood engravings by Gaylord Schanilec in the book. Printed in 12 point Monotype Emerson. Tall thin 4to., bound at the Campbell-Logan Bindery in original black morocco backed, grey silk covered boards with black morocco and sliver spine label, housed with the printed card portfolio of prints in a black cloth covered clamshell box with printed paper spine label. As new.
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 wood engravings 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.
