This lot includes the group of Roycrofter ephemera shown in the corresponding image. This material comes from the estate of John G. MacNaughton, who was married to the daughter (Ruth Beebe MacNaughton) of Charles Thomas Beebe. Mr. Beebe worked for the Roycroft Shop in East Aurora, New York, from approximately 1905 to circa 1928. Among other possible duties at the famous shops, Mr. Beebe designed some of the unique trademark stampings for book bindings and probably worked as a bookbinder and finisher as well.

Many of the items in the collection are one of a kind designs, from doodles to drafts to blind stamped proofs. There are also a number of stamped book covers and rubbings of book covers as examples of what is presumed to be Mr. Beebe’s work. Many items are signed and/or dated, giving a comprehensive overview of his prominent career as a Roycrofter.

Information derived from the collection suggests that Charles T. Beebe lived on Grove Street in East Aurora, throughout his employment for Elbert Hubbard, author and founder of the Roycroft Shops.

Elbert Hubbard founded the Roycroft community in 1895 in the village of East Aurora, Erie County, New York, near Buffalo. The work and philosophy of the group, often referred to as the Roycroft movement, had a strong influence on the development of American architecture and design in the early 20th century. Elbert Green Hubbard (June 19, 1856 – May 7, 1915) was an eccentric American writer, publisher, artist, and philosopher. He was an influential exponent of the Arts and Crafts movement who produced not only fine books but furniture in this aesthetic, and was a prolific writer himself; he is perhaps most famous for his essay A Message to Garcia.

This lot includes a large number of original color and pencil drawings on art and trace paper by Charles Beebe. This antique, hand-drawn items provide insight into Beebe's role as a Roycrofter bookbinder. This unique collection features a number of items pertaining directly to Elbert Hubbard and the Roycrofters.
