At first glance this is not a particularly dazzling edition, but for one who appreciates good type beautifully set, it is remarkable. In a letter to a reviewer, Rogers once gave his opinion of some other publishers’ fine editions. He said, “My criticism of them is that the ‘Art’ element stands out too strongly in them all—they are objects of art first—books to be read secondly—and somehow I would prefer to have my work primarily bookish—the art concealed or subordinated to the literary quality.” (quoted in Joseph Blumenthal’s Bruce Rogers: A Life in Letters.)
