Shipping to United States: Free

Beautiful and rare little essay booklet by George William Gerwig and published by Roycroft, East Aurora NY in 1929.

Roycroft was a very successful private press founed in 1893 by Elbert Hubbard (1856-1915) during the Arts & Crafts movement. He was one of the first presses to use mail order. In 1899, 40 million copies of "A Message to Garcia" were printed. The NYC Railroad put a copy behind each seat. In addition, Hubbard established arts and crafts workshops. Roycroft went bancrupt in 1938.

It is a study about the wife of MacBeth, the differences between them and how she sacrifices her own soul to aid him.

The book is put together with silk cording, is illuminated and has 29 pages.It is 8 X 6". There is a small rip on page 28 and some yellow stains on page 1 and 3. The cover is in excellent vintage condition. The picture of Lady Macbeth is loose, I believe that is how it is supposed to be.

Shipping from United States

I use standard shipping costs for different size items. In reality it may be more to ship or may be a little less. What you see is what you get & I believe my prices reflect that and are worth it. Whatever shipping cost is on the item is what you pay. With the cost of different boxes etc. it just makes sense to use a flat fee for certain items. I don't add the cost of mailing products to the item, I depend on my shipping costs to include that. I have had instances when my international shipping has been way off, and if that is the case, I do refund that part of the shipping cost. I insure EVERYTHING.
