Book Description Book Club of Texas, Austin, 1994. First edition. Number 66 of 195 numbered copies, this being one of 95 copies issued with an original autograph letter, signed by Bernhardt Wall to Theodore Fred Kuper, dated February 23, 1931. This handsome production was designed and typeset at the Castle Press, Pasadena, California. The letterpress was by Patrick Reach, printer of Glendale, California. Quarto. 11½x8¾ inches. Pp. viii, 83. Black & white frontispiece portrait of Bernhardt Wall, 9 original etchings tipped-in, 5 photogravure reproductions printed by the Flatbed Press of Austin; bibliography. Original letter laid in. Dark gray cloth spine over boards by Craig Jensen of the BookLab, Austin. Printed paper label on front cover, matching gray dust jacket with paper spine label. The whole housed in matching cloth and gray paper slipcase. A very fine, as new copy. Artist and historian, Bernhardt Wall (1872-1956) was a pioneer etcher and producer of fine press books who treated a vast array of subjects, including Texas and the Southwest. Historians of fine press printing have compared him to William Blake. He became known as the "Postcard King" and designed over 4,000 comic postcards between 1902 and 1913. The year 1915 marked a defining point in Wall's artistic career. Wall visited Colorado, Nevada and California making etchings of Indians, cowboys, missions and major cities which were later published in a portfolio entitled, "Under Western Skies." These proved to be very successful and the artist shortly thereafter moved to California permanently. Wall continued to produce many fine etchings of the American West and by 1930 had also become a much respected historian of the region. Seller Inventory # 8224
