Cream-colored wrappers, title stamped in gilt on the front cover; binding square and tight, some toning to the covers, light shelf wear to extremities. Very Good. Privately printed for a member of the Roxburghe Club of San Francisco who presented a copy to each member of the Club at the January 1956 meeting. This piece is a memoir to Albert M. Bender intended to be read by Dr. Deutsch before the Club; however, Deutsch died before the meeting of the Club. Reference: Magee and Magee, Bibliography of the Grabhorn Press, 1940-1956, No. 573.
