Rabbi Ben Ezra.

Concord, Mass. Will Bradley at the Sign of the Vine, n.d. [ca. ? 1902]. Slim, small 12mo, pp. [20]; printed in red and black, decorative title page and page borders; fine copy in original gray paper-covered boards, paper label on spine. "During the first years of the new century ... Bradley issued several small volumes from the Sign of the Vine at Concord, printed for him by Heintzemann of Boston. They are in plain paper boards with printed labels on the front ... Browning's Rabbi Ben Ezra is a hybrid. It has modern type with large red initials and running heads with type ornaments. The hand-lettered title page is, however, Art Nouveau in feeling, with a repeated woodcut rose motif" (Thompson, American Book Design and William Morris, p. 124; see also plate 63). Item #6012
