    More Information:

    James Guthrie. Root and Branch. A Quarterly of the Arts. [London and Sussex: The Pear Tree Press and The Morland Press, 1912, 1917-1918. First editions. Volume I, nos. 1-4 and Volume II, nos. 1-4. Eight octavo issues. With beautiful illustrations. Without outer wrappers. [with:] A limitation plate signed by Guthrie (for copy 48 of 50 copies of a book), and two full-page samples of marbled paper. Clearly, these issues were intended to be bound into a single volume, yet for some reason the project did not go forward. Minor rubbing. Save for the lack of wrappers, this is a fine set, and a tantalizing look at the book that would have been.
