About this Item: Jonathan Cape and Harrison Smith, NY, 1929. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good Minus. Lynd Ward (illustrator). First Printing. 8vo. A novel in woodcuts, with 144 powerful and evocative images, drawn by Lynd Ward after his year-long apprenticeship in Graphic Arts, and exposure to German expressionist art in Leipzig, Germany.Moderate rubbing and shelf-wear to extremities with cardboard peeking out from lower right corner. Front hinge just started between copyright and dedication pages. Binding very solid. Fraying to top 1/8 inch of spine. Association copy inscribed on half-title page, to Will H. Solle and signed by Ward. Solle was a well-known bookman who, to preserve his health, declaring himself done with the book business once and for all, then famously abandoned his big-city job in Chicago as Vice President of Kroch's Books, and retired to the touristy village of Omena, in Northern Michigan. Soon however, he opened a shop out of his home there which became one of the most popular destinations in North America for serious bibliophiles. Ward's GODS' MAN was the first American wordless novel, which he created after being inspired by European wordless works by Frans Masereel and Otto Nuckel. The book was issued a week before the Great Crash of 1929 and became a bestseller. Essentially a Faustian tale, the 144 (one-per page) darkly striking woodcut images tell the tale of a young artist who receives an enchanted paintbrush from a mysterious stranger, which brings him fame and success, in return for some unspecified exchange. Later the stranger comes to collect, and verily, he does. Seller Inventory # 73462
