From the introduction, "This book examines Mitchell Kennerley in the context of the world of books in the early decades of this centuyry. Kennerley operated in two overlapping fields: as a publisher from 1902 until about 1924 and as head of the Anderson Galleries during 1915-1929. The latter activity coincided with the golden era of American book collecting. Golden eras require golden men; Kennerley's world was populated with legendary bookmen." Illustrated.
