Hilltop- Limited Edition Print from The Colophon, A Book Collector's Quarterly Part 5.

New York: Pynson Printers, 1931. Original limited edition print by David Milne titled Hilltop. It is a drypoint print done in two colors. The print measure 6.75" x 5" and is in fine condition. It is pencil signed "David B Milne" just below the print. Despite the size of the edition 3000 copies this remains one of the hardest issues to find because of the Milne print. Some of the articles in the issue include: "Post Bellum - Pre Harlem" by Charles W. Chesnutt and several beautiful designs by Charles E. Bracker, "The Way to Wealth for Indigent Bookmen" by Pierce Butler, "The Early Adventures of 'Sister Carrie'" by Theodore Dreiser, "A Note on Collecting Prospectuses" by Paul Johnston, and a great article done by the Lakeside Press in Chicago titled "The Work in Book Illustration of Rudolph Ruzicka" written by William Kittredge and includes several wonderful examples of Ruzicka's work. The issue itself is in close to near fine condition with some very slight soiling to the boards. Includes some original ephemera. A great copy of this uncommon issue.
