Chicago: Loyola University Press, [1953]. Hardcover. Small 4to. Burgundy blind-lettered cloth with gilt lettering. 31pp. Small illustrations, map endpapers. Near fine. Item #46915

Handsome, tight first edition of this slim tribute with quaintly archaic lengthy subtitle -- whose Latin title translates "A good book is the best teacher." Laid in is card of Loyola University Press's assistant director. Small inkstamp on front pastedown of Stanislaus Vincent Bona (1888-1967), bishop of Green Bay, Wisconsin (1945-67). Unusual.
