Description

“The Personal Account by Revere of his Famous Ride.” A very handsome miniature book, produced in a limited edition of 1,000 copies bound in full brown leather, blind-stamped with a cover drawing of Revere on his horse, all edges gilt. The condition is virtually mint.

ACHILLE J. ST. ONGE (January 17, 1913–April 23, 1978) was the greatest maker of miniature books in the 20th Century. Based in Worcester, Massachusetts, he began producing them as a hobby in 1935. By the time he ceased in 1977, St. Onge had created 48 miniature masterpieces on an eclectic variety of subjects. The books all remain much-prized by collectors.
