The Greenleaf Portfolio.

Guthrie, Stuart, Robin, & John (illus.)

Flansham: Greenleaf Press, 1917. (9)ff. Small quarto. A portfolio of eight wood engravings in black & white, with the title page printed in copper ink. The publication and illustrations were done by Stuart, Robin, and John Guthrie, the sons of James Guthrie of the Pear Tree Press. The Greenleaf Press was established in 1915 by Guthrie for his sons while they were still children. Although it is an amateur publication, it serves as evidence that the passion for printing was shared by the whole Guthrie family. In blue wrappers with printed paper label on upper cover; one engraving is tipped in, and the last two are bound out of order, as issued. This extremely rare item is in near fine condition, with wrappers sunned, label foxed, and one corner bumped. This is the sole published issue of The Greenleaf Portfolio, and only one other copy is known. Item #25902

Price: $450.00
