The front pastedown bears James Goode’s anteater bookplate by Richard Wagener. From the preface “You will not find a history of R.R. Donnelly and Sons Company in these pages, of which Company I am immensely proud, nor the story of my business career. I have no illusions as to my talents as an author, but my associates have taken advantage of my love for and my dedication to the Company and the thousands of fine people in it. They have persuaded me, in the year of my retirement, that it would be useful to present and future generations of Donnelly people to draw off my experiences, and my knowledge of the business even before my time, in an attempt to analyze the factors underlying our extraordinary strength and growth. In these pages you will find a brief, simple portrayal of our Company’s character, and explanation of our basic philosophy and policies, and a description of some practices that have served us so well for over a hundred years.”
