Bradley His Book, May MDCCCXCVI, Vol. One, No. One

Springfield, MA: The Wayside Press, 1896.

First Edition. Softcover. Very good. 10 1/2 x 5 1/8 inches, bound in hand-sewn color pictorial wrappers. [30] pp, profusely illustrated. Moderate wear to edges of wrappers, internals fine. Will H Bradley (1868-1962) was one of the most respected and commercially successful American illustrators and graphic designers of the first half of the twentieth century. Although Bradley His Book was a success with the public and with his colleagues, his business acurmen did not match his creative abilities and the periodical went through only seven issues. This issue includes a story by Davis, a poem by Monroe, and an essay on artist Edward Penfield by Bradley. There are numerous beautifully designed ads in art nouveau style.
