One of 125 copies, octavo size, 40 pp. Henry Miller Madden (1912-1982?) served as the University librarian at CSU-Fresno for thirty years, and was, in addition, an author, scholar, and translator in his own right. A collector of works in German that describe early travel experiences of Germans in California, Mr. Madden bequethed his collection to Fresno State. This slim volume, printed by Mallette Dean in 1958 for the Albert Bender Memorial Fund, is an essay by Mr. Madden on his passion for these books; it may have arisen out of a presentation he gave to the Roxburghe Club, San Francisco, of which he was a member from 1958-1982. With two hand-coloured illustrations, likely by Mallette Dean. ___DESCRIPTION: Natural linen shelfback with paper spine label, tan paper over boards with black and orange printed pattern of bears and the California poppy, fore-edge uncut, illustrated title page, showing (presumably) German travelers, the essay opens with a three-line initial capital letter, additional illustration on p. 16 in black and-white with yellow; octavo size (8.25" by 5.75"), pagination: [1]-39, [colophon], limited edition of 125 copies, unnumbered, printed by Mallette Dean for the Albert Bender Memorial Fund. ___CONDITION: Fine, the binding clean and free of any wear, a strong text block with solid hinges, pages are bright and clean and free of prior owner markings; a handsome production by Mallette Dean for the Roxburghe Club._ __POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please inquire for details. ___Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.
