    My husband and I have been collecting Roycroft books since we lived in East Aurora in the early 90s. We love the few lovely volumes we have, especially the lovely soft, tooled leather covers. Amazing engravings, they are a treat to look at.

      My hero, Elbert Hubbard.

      One of my all time favorites. Should be required reading for all schools...

      I have several other Elbert Hubbard scrapbooks, but I only have the ones published by the Roycroft shown here. He was indeed a brilliant man. Did you know he died on the Lusitania in 1915? (the Lusitania was a passenger ship, sunk by German U-boats off the coast of Ireland).

      Yep, that's a wonderful set. I'm sure you could get a good price for that set if you wanted to sell it. You don't happen to have the bookcase they came in, do you?
    5. stefdesign stefdesign, 10 years ago
      No, I wish! I've only seen it online. You can see it here: http://www.abebooks.com/servlet/BookDetailsPL?bi=5457738838&searchurl=an%3Dhubbard%26sortby%3D1%26tn%3Dlittle%2Bjourney%2Bto%2Bthe%2Bhomes%2Bof%2Bthe%2Bgreat
      That's actually a bookcase for a larger set, so perhaps the 14 volume set didn't come with a bookcase.
      Here's some info on your set:

      You'll notice that the $500 set is autographed by Elbert Hubbard II... so that's probably the reason for the high price.

      nice to other people collecting Roycroft ,,,most think of Elbert Hubbard as the soap salesman, but he was a Steve Jobs of the late 1800s and early 1900, forming a campus of all the master's of free thinkers ,writers ,and craft poeple of the times.

      meant to say nice to seeeeeeeeee........other peopl.....have to start proof reading i guess..(smileing)
