About this Item

[FIRST EDITION] New York: The Aldus Printers, Inc., 1929. Tall portfolio with loose contents (as issued). Six sections totaling 40 pages + 4 pages of preliminary text, in screen-printed paper over board portfolio with cloth spine strip and silk fore-edge ties. Each of the sections contains illustrations (mostly colored) with descriptive letterpress text. States: "Copyrighted . Jean Berte, inc. New York City." Subtitled: 'An Explanation of the Jean Berte Process of Water Colour Printing.' Bertà used hand-cut rubber-faced letterpress printing blocks, which he printed using his own luminous water-based inks. Often overprinting six or more of the purest, most translucent colors, he was able to mass produce images of such freshness and startling impact that they were often confused with being hand painted. A rare title with minor edge-wear and spoting to portfolio, rear tie almost gone, front tie frayed, small sticker on lower spine and library-style pocket on rear paste-down, two small notations on paste-downs (possibly library in nature?), light age-toning, otherwise a very good example of this hard-to-find work. (cw). Bookseller Inventory # IP-OFEE-YJX8
