A festschrift for calligrapher Raymond Da Boll (b. 1892). James Wells of the Newberry Library notes in his Foreword that Da Boll was one of the most distinguished alumni of the Newberry Calligraphy Study Group, a band of students attracted to the Library in 1942 when it acquired the Ricketts Collection of writing-books and calligraphic manuscripts. "The Library and the world of fine writing profited a great deal from their use of the collection." In addition to Wells, the contributors include Paul Standard and Warren Chappell, among others.
