First edition. One of only two hundred and fifty numbered copies, set by hand by Victor Hammer, and printed by Jacob Hammer at their press in Lexington, KY. With Hammer's presentation inscription on the front free endsheet "to Brother Antoninus O.P. from Victor Hammer 1953." This is a superb association copy, joining two of the pre- eminent American printers of the 20th century, and certainly the two most significant printers whose art was imbued with the spirit of their religious faith.
