"As Felicia Rice notes in her moving introduction to this work, Sherwood Grover had typeset and fully competed printing, folding and collating ten of the twenty-two quotations into one signature of COMMONPLACE BOOK SEVEN. A second signature required only the the second (red) color to be complete. When Grover Sidney died in July, 1986, the ink was on the press and the forms were left standing. These Sheets have now been completed by Felicia Rice at her Moving Parts Press." Issued as the ninth official publication of the Roxburghe Club. (From the publication announcement on the letterhead of James Linden, laid in)

Whimsical, eclectic, ironic, the quotations in this commonplace book range from Steven Crane, Baskerville, Mohandas Gandhi and Ronald Reagan.
