    Robert Browning. So Here Then is the Last Ride. Roycrofters: Aurora, 1900.

    First edition, thus. Signed by publisher Elbert Hubbard and artist Harriet Robarge. Limited to 25 numbered copies, this being number 7. Octavo. 10 pages.

    Full maroon morocco. Gilt-stamped lettering to spine. Raised bands. Blind band designs on boards. Ornate full doublures of inlaid morocco and gilt-stamped designs. Silk moiré endpapers. Printed on vellum. Each page decorated with illumined illustrations. Inked notation on verso of front endpaper, presumably added by Roycrofters staff, reads, "Published and bound by the Roycroft Shop 1900." Laid in is a TLS on Roycrofters letterhead dated Feb. 22, 1901, from Roycrofters secretary, Lyle Hawthorne, in which he says that this book is "the best thing we have done so far." Fine.
