Original Leaf from the Polycronicon Printed by William Caxton at Westminster in the Year 1482.

1 Caxton, WilliamOriginal Leaf from the Polycronicon Printed by William Caxton at Westminster in the Year 1482. The Life and Works of William Caxton, with an historical reminder of fifteenth century England by Benjamin P Kurtz, together with a Note on the Polycronicon by Oscar Lewis & and Appreciation of William Caxton by Edwin Grabhorn
, San Francisco: Grabhorn Press, 1938. 1st thus., Near Fine.. Quarto. 53pp. One of 297 copies printed for the Book Club of California by Edwin and Robert Grabhorn. Quarter cloth and maroon paper boards with Caxton's printers device in black to both boards. Paper label with black text to spine. Fore edge and bottom edge untrimmed. An unusual mixed set. This copy ex-libris the Bancroft Library with its blind-stamp and an inkstamped “withdrawn” notice [dated 1989] on the last leaf. The BCC published this homage to Caxton with an original leaf from the Polycronican tipped-in following the title page. That leaf is missing and a penciled note, dated 1939, states that the leaf had been removed before the Bancroft received it -- apparently a gift from Alfred Bender, Chairman of the BCC Publication Committee. [The rear endpaper appears to have Bender’s gift inscription but it was very carefully bleached out.] A subsequent owner purchased a substitute leaf from the original Polycronican in 1999 for a cost of $700 and that leaf is now laid in. This leaf is a sound copy but with several worm holes in bottom left corner, not affecting the text, and several contemporaneous inked notations in the margins. Except for the original leaf having been removed and replaced and Bender’s bleached inscription, the book is in near fine condition with only scant surface wear. Also laid in is the original BCC prospectus for the work and several pieces of related ephemera. $1025.
