The Philistine [1904 series in 11 volumes]; A Periodical of Protest

East Aurora, NY: Roycrofters, 1904. First Edition. Paperback. 12mo. 6"x4.5". Sewn butcher paper wraps. All volumes in very good condition with minor shelf wear to wraps, and several have unopened pages.
This is a collection of 1904 antique books hand-printed by the Roycrofters, the celebrated arts and crafts community of East Aurora, NY. This is a mostly complete 1904 run of the Philistine magazine (lacking the May issue). The Philistine ran from 1895-1915 and was largely a journal of satire, progressive political essays, and short literary works. Hubbard said the magazine was bound in butcher paper because "There is meat inside." Very good. Item #4427
