Book Description Alford, MA, 1962. Fink, Sheldon (illustrator). Small quarto. 28ff. One of forty copies. Etched title page and twenty-six fine etchings by Fink, ranging thematically from portraits to botany, to insects. Many of Fink's etchings have a decidedly Baskinesque aesthetic, but Fink's circle centered primarily in New York, where he was friendly with Jack Levine and Raphael Soyer. For this collection, Fink commissioned Royall Moore to create paper with a high linen count, and this was the subject of a Popular Mechanics article in 1965. Moore, who was described in the article as an "inventive Yankee," was a carpenter by trade, and made all the equipment himself. The binding for this edition was executed by Arno Werner, who bound it in full deerskin with a hubbed spine and decorations printed in black on the upper cover and spine. Werner also presumably made the marbled endpapers, which also decorate the deerskin-backed folding case. Some minor wear to extremtites of the box, otherwise fine and bright.
