Caldwell: The Caxton Printers, 1939. 8vo, original decorative orange cloth, decorated in gilt and black; pictorial jacket. 286 pages; frontispiece and 28 other plates, 2 depicting Emperor Norton scrip. Dust jacket with neat tape repair at head of spine; jacket clipped. Near fine. Item #6320
The classic biography of Norton, well known in the numismatic field for his scarce issues of scrip. A well-illustrated work, whose Idaho publishers appear to have underestimated the demand, making it scarce from the start; copies with intact dust-jackets are particularly elusive.
