Santa Cruz: William James Association, 1976. Title/index leaf, fourteen broadsides, and errata sheet. Folio (52 x 39.5 cm). Loose typographically decorated broadsides, laid into gilt lettered folding cloth portfolio. A few minor marks to portfolio, some creases to portfolio paper flaps, otherwise fine. Item #WRCLIT85719

First and only edition. One of ca. 200 sets printed on Tovil handmade paper. A singular undertaking in observance of the Bicentennial Year, wherein distinguished printers were invited to select appropriate texts and present them in broadside form, with the only requirement being size and paper. Those who contributed are: Clifford Burke (Cranium Press); Sebastian Carter (Rampant Lions Press); Bert Clarke (A. Colish); William Everson (Lime Kiln Press); Katherine & Sherwood Grover (Grace Hoper Press); Andrew Hoyem (Arion Press); Mark Landsburgh ( Sign of the Albion Press); Cheryl Miller, Kathy Walkup and Jaime Robles (Five Tree Press); Henry Morris (Bird & Bull Press); Ward Ritchie; Jack Stauffacher (Greenwood Press); Stinehour Press; Tom Whitridge (Didymus Press) and Adrian Wilson (Press in Tuscany Alley). The accompanying errata indicates that David Godine and Alvin Eisenman would be sending their broadsides directly to the subscribers, but neither broadside was published. In spite of the large limitation, sets infrequently turn up for resale, many of the original subscribers having been institutions.
