SCHANILEC, Gaylord. AUCHINCLOSS, Kenneth. ~ New York Revisited.
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.
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.
