A PRETTY BOOK: HOMER R. STEPHENS' DALTON & HAMER

David Fanning forwarded me a few images and lot descriptions from Kolbe & Fanning's June 3, 2010 auction sale of the second part of the Stack Family Library. Here's a pretty one for the lover of fine bindings. -Editor

Dalton & Hamer Dalton & Hamer

Fourteen parts complete, as bound in two volumes.

A beautifully bound set of the rare original edition. Ex Homer R. Stephens, with his original receipt dated July 30, 1936 from Wayte Raymond, and Raymond’s original receipt from Bernard Quaritch, London, dated July 13, 1936.
