A short biography of Arthur Rushmore and a comprehensive bibliography of his works set by hand for Harper & Brothers and his own Golden Hind Press. This edition was hand set in Monotype and printed on an old Heidelberg press. Tipped in are examples of the unique paste papers produced by the Golden Hind Press along with actual pages from the press' numerous works. The bibliography covers all known works designed and/or printed by Rushmore from his early days at Harper & Brothers (1927) to his death in 1955 and a few titles printed by his wife shortly thereafter. This special edition on Rushmore and his place in the American fine press tradition will be appreciated by all enthusiasts of this important genre.
