About this Item

This is a book in EXCELLENT condition (Near Mint). It is from the library of Phillips Andover Academy, and it has a whited-out sticker on the spine (which is now invisible), a small sticker on the front endpaper, and a bookplate on back of front cover. However, these are all the library markings there are, and they are very discreet. There are no rubber stamps on the page-edges or anywhere else that we can find. There is no library pocket in the back. All in all, it is an excellent copy which looks as though no one ever checked it out. This copy has been signed by ELMER RISING, the artist of this beautiful Monograph. Because of the large size (14 x 18.25") of this book, extra shipping will be required. The Dustjacket is now protected with a custom-made Mylar covering. Bookseller Inventory # 003627

There are 21 text pages preceding the 42 marvelous plates by Elmer Rising. The book is printed on 100# Mohawk Superfine paper. The entire presentation is extraordinary and the beauty of the work makes it difficult to decide which plate is your favorite as you turn the pages!
