East Aurora, New York: Roycrofters, 1901. Limited, Numbered, Edition. Hardcover. Quarter-bound, grey boards over tan spine covered with woven cloth. Decorative paste-on design to front board, labeled simply "BEETHOVEN". LIMITED edition #927 out of 940 copies produced. Tissue-guarded frontis portrait of Beethoven by Florence (Pearl) England Nosworthy (1872-1936). Hand illumined Untrimmed fore-edge and tail. Five-color hand-illumined drop caps at each section head, with ornate tailpiece from front board, repeated at ends of chapters. Minor rubbing to extremities. We think that previous owner (elaborate and very professional-seeming) painstakingly painted his initials, one black and one red, (2.5" wide, and the other 1.5" high) within ornate gold-filled borders, one for each initial. VERY GOOD. Item #73784
