He came to be respected as one of the finest craftsmen practicing this trade, a reputation that allowed work to follow him to Deer Isle, ME where he and fellow islander Leonard Baskin became close friends, attracted by a mutual interest in the book arts.

Ironically, an unbound copy in 20 signatures. Some staining to rear page and signature spines.
