    Beowulf Limited Edition Illustrated by Rockwell Kent (New York: Random House, 1932), limited to 950 copies, 146 pages, folio (10.5" x 13.5"), set by hand, bound in cloth with white printed decoration, 8 black and white full-page lithographs by Rockwell Kent. This is the thumbprint edition of this book in which Kent has substituted his thumbprint on the colophon page for his signature. The word "Review" appears in the location designated for indicating the number of the limited copy, thus this was likely a review copy. The book is in very good condition with some darkening to spine and fraying to the head and foot of the spine.
