A Little Rebellion Now & Then.

Santa Cruz, CA: William James Association, 1976. Elephant folio. 15ff., loose. One of 200 copies. To commemorate the bicentennial of the founding of the United States, seventeen printers contributed broadsides in their own styles, illustrating in image and type statements from various founding fathers. The participating printers included William Everson, Andrew Hoyem, Adrian Wilson, Ward Ritchie, Sebastian Carter, and Henry Morris. In opting for broadsides, the project highlights colonial printers’ public means of activism and reinvigorates the practice by selecting passages calling for peace and freedom. Such messages gain a different significance over time, but though their objects have perhaps changed and, in some ways, grown more complicated, their belief in America’s potential for justice remains. Lacking the broadsides from David Godine and Alvin Eisenman, as is true of all copies. Sheets all fine in a cloth-covered portfolio showing light rubbing. Item #30262
