"A log of this project would reveal how the "dream" expanded from the early plan to collect all the marks used in the books B. R. designed and make a book of them as a birthday surprise for his seventy-fifth...What we really wished to do was build a different kind of book about our friend- one which would reflect his moods and manner of work. This book, then, is a sort of biography of B. R. by his friends." --from the editor's note (145-147 p.). "This edition comprises 400 copies for the Typophile contributors and subscribers, 55 copies for the members of the Carteret Book Club, Newark, N.J., and 350 copies for general sale."-- colophon. Part of the Typophile Chap Book Series, book 15. Copy includes three different pieces of ephemera relating to Bruce Rogers.
