Notes Book is reprinted from "The Fra"; boards are paper covered with 1/4 leather (spine). It is illustrated with black and white photographs. The original ribbon bookmark is present. There are 2 B&W illustrations - I think; feel too thin to be actual photos - pasted in within decorative borders of what I presume is the Roycrofter home (on verso of half title page) and the Roycroft publishing building (also presumed ) on the title page. It has the usual red/black emblem and decoration on first page of chapters, half-title, title and content pages. It is clean, straight & tight; the pages have no marks or tears except for a small gift inscription on the front endpage. The head and foot of the spine are chipped with some material missing and the spine is rubbed. The page edges are rough cut. Not a biography but intimate sketches of the author's association with his father, Elbert Hubbard. A very nice copy! ; B&W Photographs; 8 x 6 inches; 129 pages
