Elbert Hubbard (1856-1915) was an American writer, editor, and publisher. He founded the Roycroft Press in 1893 in East Aurora, NY, modeled after William Morris' communal Kelmscott Press in England. Beginning in 1895, Hubbard issued monthly booklets called “Little Journeys," which contained biographical essays of famous persons, interwoven with comment and satire. In 1908, he began to edit and publish a second monthly, The Fra. The Roycroft Press establishment expanded to include furniture and leather shops, a smithy, and an art school, becoming an influential exponent of the Arts and Crafts Movement. Hubbard died in the sinking of the Lusitania in 1915.

The Elbert Hubbard I Knew (Roycrofters, 1929) was written by Hubbard's sister, Mary Hubbard Heath. It contains a family tree and numerous photos. No dust jacket; brown, orange and green marbled leather spine over dark orange paper; gilt lettering on spine rubbed; covers soiled; front hinge weak; slight foxing throughout text; deckled edges. G
