No. 201 of 200 printed (figure that out! – I’m guessing that the print run was actually 250). Staple-bound, card wraps, 19.7 by 25.4 cm, 117 pp., illus. Very good with only faint wear at the head and tail of the spine. This volume of the Year Book acted as a membership directory with the name, address and a short bio of each member – both individuals and institutions – and notes on their bookplate. An appendix lists all members, past and present. Over seventy illustrations are joined by forty-three tipped-in member bookplates – an amazing collection. Some of the plates included are for Francis Wilbur Allen, Carlyle S. Baer, The Free Library of Philadelphia, Doris Frohnsdorff, Louis Ginsberg, William V. Hollander, Huntington Library, Dan Burne Jones, Clare Ryan Talbot, Robert B. Turnbull, etc., and some of the designers include Charles R. Capon, Harry J. Oshiver, Leo Wyatt, Lynd Ward, E. Helene Sherman, Harry M. French, James Fahnestock, Cleora Wheeler, etc.
