This book consists of a series of apothegms on Friendship extracted from the works of Emerson, Montaigne, George Washington, and many, many others. The book is printed by the Tomoye Press, which at this time was run by John Henry Nash, this publication with all the hallmarks of Nash's work. The Tomoye Press was owned by Paul Elder, but run by Nash. Nash's contribution to Elder's publications was profound; almost all of Elder's memorable and collectable works were designed and typeset by Nash. Nash was a talented designer and an exceptional compositor and technician. His trademark was the mitred rule - the vertical and horizontal lines that appear in many of Elder's books - which are quite tricky to set.
