LIMITED EDITION of 200 copies printed with Carolus type. "This was a small broadside printed with a wood engraving by my friend the late Paul Landacre. It was done for an edition of Brett Harte's 'How Christmas Came to Simpson's Bar' which I had printed several years earlier. The broadside was originally done as a keepsake for the joint meeting of the Roxburghe Club of San Francisco and the Zamorano Club of Los Angeles in 1976." Ritchie. Paul Hambleton Landacre (1893-1963) was an active participant in the cultural flowering of interwar Los Angeles, described by Jake Zeitlin as a 'small Renaissance, Southern California style.' (Wikipedia). Landcare's contributions were his 'artistic innovations and technical virtuosity' in the art of wood engraving (see Wikipedia).
