Description

Bruce Rogers was a great admirer of Geoffroy Tory’s work. Rogers long hoped to produce a new edition in English of Tory’s Champ Fleury. As early as 1914 Rogers proposed the book to The Grolier Club, but it would be very costly, so they turned it down. However, Rogers would not give, and over a decade later the Grolier Club agreed to take on the publication.

Beautifully printed at William Edwin Rudge’s shop in Mount Vernon, NY, it is one of the finest editions published by the Grolier Club, and among Rogers’ thirty favorite examples of his work as a book designer.
