About this Item: Ranchos Press, 1940. Soft cover. Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Fair. Limited Edition. Condition: Good/fair. The text is in very good condition with no marks or underlining. No dog-eared pages nor previous owner's bookplate. The text is purposely on a variety of colored paper, each color choice suggesting a mood or emotion for the words. Some pages are discolored but the text is not affected. The cover is in fair/poor condition with tears to edges and spine ends, with some spotting and creasing. Besides the fascinating story of the conquest of the Aztec empire by Hernan Cortes, around 500 Spanish soldiers, and thousands of indigenous allies, this book is a fascinating product of a small press in Taos, New Mexico in 1940. Its author, Joseph O'Kane Foster (1898 - c.1972), set the text by hand and printed the book on a platen press. Foster was a reporter and writer. Born in Chicago, he attended the University of Wisconsin (1915-19) and joined the editorial staff of the Chicago Evening newspaper in 1920. During the 20s and 30s he wrote for various magazines and newspapers. THE GREAT MONTEZUMA (written in 1936) was his first published book, but it had to be self-published. His prose poem was described by the author as being a film play. It was followed by other books: IN THE NIGHT DID I SING (1942), A COW IS TOO MUCH TROUBLE IN LOS ANGELES (1952), STREET OF THE BAREFOOT LOVERS (1953), TIME TO EMBRACE(1955), STEPHANA (1959), and D.H. LAWRENCE IN TAOS (1972). The design of the book was created by recent New York - Taos transplant Thomas Benrimo, a teacher and artist who wrote of his color choices and design as "an attempt to establish an emotional relationship between the poetic implications inherent in Mr. Foster's work and the psychophysical and psychological qualities of color." The book is a lyrical, often powerful examination of the initial Spanish contact with the mighty Aztec empire. The meetings between the emperor Montezuma (Moctezuma) and the Spanish conquistador Hernan Cortes in 1519 are very well described, even if poetic license and imagination are an essential part. The subsequent battles and uncertainties by both parties are fascinating and ultimately heart-rending as a mighty empire (though not a gentle one) falls. Signed by Author(s).

About this Item: Ranchos de Taos: Ranchos Press (1940). Large octavo, printed wrappers. [8], 239, (6), Ranchos de Taos: Ranchos Press (1940). Large octavo, slightly oversized pictorial wrappers. Pp. [8], 246, [2], and with tipped-in printed half-sheets at front and back as usual. Text printed on tinted papers of various hues throughout. Designed by Thomas Benrimo. Limited to 1250 copies, signed by the author. This copy additionally inscribed and signed by the author to noted Soutwest bookman Lawrence Clark Powell. Paper wrappers with short splits at spine ends but otherwise fine. This copy even has the original glassine wrapper (chipped in a few places and repaired with tape on back panel). A very good to fine copy overall. First Edition. Designed by noted early American modernist artist Thomas Benrimo who explains in great detail his use of different colors of paper to accompany the mood of the writing itself, using the sequence of colors to "alternately intensify and slow up the reading tempo." and to ".establish an emotional relationship between the poetic implications inherent in Mr. Foster's work and the psychophysical and psychological qualities of color." Thomas Benrimo (1887-1958) was a San Francisco-born, largely self-taught artist who became a successful stage designer and commercial artist in New York. From 1935 to 1939 he taught at Pratt Institute, where he was one of the first to introduce the Bauhaus teaching methods into the curriculum. He moved to Taos in 1939, and remained there for the rest of his life, inspired in his abstract pieces by the New Mexico landscape. Benrimo is not as widely recognized today as other artists of the Taos colony, but during his lifetime his cubist, surreal, and abstract paintings were exhibited internationally and celebrated worldwide for their distinctive style and form. Benrimo's work may be found in the permanent collections of the Cincinnati Museum of Art, Denver Art Museum, Fort Worth Museum of Modern of Art, and the Whitney Museum of Art,University of New Mexico Museum of Art, and the Fine Arts Museum in Santa Fe.
