Bruce Rogers, Selected Letters, 1915-1918. [Edited by Patrick McGuire.] 8vo, pp.viii, 63, Caliban Press, Canton, New York, 1988.

Number 123 of 190 copies handset in Garamont type and printed on Frankfurt cream paper. 5 illustrations. Rives paper-covered boards decorated with letter designs, tan leather spine lettered in gilt, top edge trimmed, others uncut. A fine copy.

Sixteen letters (all but three previously unpublished) addressed mainly to H.W. Kent, Emery Walker and Sydney Cockerell, largely concerning the Grolier Club publication of Albrecht Durer's 'On the Just Shaping of Letters' (the only book actually printed by Rogers). There are many references to his difficulties in working in Cambridge in wartime England.
