- Small quarto [approximately 8 inches high by 6 inches wide], softcover bound in tan wrappers printed in black with a vignette in black on the front cover & the Rose Valley Press logo on the rear wrap. There are minor chips to the edges of the covers with a piece out from the top left corner of the rear cover. [40] unopened deckle-edged pages, numbered 153 through 192. Illustrated with a 2-page facsimile. There is some minor chipping to the front edge of overlapping leaves. Very good. Among the contents of this issue are a facsimile of an 1889 letter from William Morris to Horace Traubel; "Sacrament of small things" by Peter Burrowes; and "The civilization that the machine has made" by Horace Traubel. Also, "A glimpse of Rose Valley from the outside" by Carleton Noyes; The Rose Valley Association was formed in July 1901, under the leadership of Wlll Price, to start an arts and crafts project. The association did not produce arts and crafts itself but rented out working space to craftsmen, provided them with housing and helped sell what they produced. Price's vision may have been modeled on the utopian socialist society described in "News from Nowhere" by William Morris. Rare.
