36 Baskin, Leonard (1922-2000) 'Chief' signed / numbered lithograph #39/100
Northampton, MA Gehenna Press 1978 No Binding Very Good Print Signed by Illustrator(s)
'CHIEF' Original lithograph by Leonard Baskin, SIGNED / NUMBERED PRINT - #39/100 Available is a rare original signed and numbered limited edition lithograph by internationally acclaimed sculptor and printmaker LEONARD BASKIN (American, 1922 - 2000). This engraving entitled 'Chief' dates from 1978, and predates his later series of Native American style subjects. It is signed in pencil by the artist on the front lower right "Baskin" and numbered on the lower left "39/100". The print is from a limited edition of only 100 impressions. It is in very good and bright condition, with a few faint creases along the perimeter of the image. See pictures for overall condition. Print measures 14" x 22-1/2" (sheet), 7-1/4" x 10-3/4" (image). CATALOG REFERENCE: This print is a non-cataloged piece from Baskin. Not listed in Alan Fern and Judith O'Sullivan's "The Complete Prints of Leonard Baskin, A Catalogue Raisonne 1948-1983". A well known draftsman, printmaker and sculptor, Leonard Baskin had the ability to depict in an abstract style man and his relation to the world. Whether working with bronze or wood or two-dimensional mediums, his focus remained on large heroic, but flawed human beings who at times recall photographic images of concentration-camp victims or birds with human bodies that suggest mythological forms. His works are part of the permanent collections at many of the world's leading galleries and museums, including the Library of Congress, Smithsonian Institution, Hirshhorn Sculpture Gardens, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum, British Museum and Vatican Museum.

Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1866. 710 pgs, with no bound advertisements in the back. Bound in Quarter black leather with black cloth boards, four raised spine bands as well as gilt spine lettering, Octavo size: (8-3/4" tall x 6-1/2"). Marbled endpapers. Presumably been rebound by "Carlon & Hollenbeck, Printers & Binders, Indianapolis" as the small (5/8" x 1-1/4") label on the rear inside board explains. Classic story with one hundred illustrations by Arthur Boyd Houghton, and engraved by the Brothers Dalziel. Book in fair condition with flaws noted: Some noticeable wear to black leather on outer hinge (both front and back); a 1-1/4" tear to the spine on front lower hinge. More wear to spine head and tail. Inner hinges are tight, but four binding threads can be seen (not a cracked hinge, looks like it was intended to be this way). Interior contents are tight, except for pages 210 - 222, which are slightly loose and protrude thru the uniform fore edge by 1/16". The illustrations do not, nor did they have tissue paper. Internally, no foxing of pages present. Outer edges of first few pages (including title page) and last 50 or so pages have moisture discoloration around the top, fore, and bottom edges (see pictures). Individual pages are flexible, but as a group of pages, feel somewhat rigid-like (which adds to the "tightness" feeling of the binding). Otherwise, a very clean, solid, and tight copy.

With yet more fascinating detail on the surrounding country, shanty villages, game hunting, the abundance of quartz and crystal, and on ancient Indian arrowheads found.

1878 The Turkish Wars with the Hospitalers Author: De Forest, J. W. Title: The Turkish Wars with the Hospitalers Publisher: New York: Harper & Brothers, 1878. Notes: A 11 page article on the history of the Hospitalers - a Western Christian military order - arose as a group of individuals associated with an Amalfitan hospital in the Muristan district of Jerusalem, which was dedicated to St John the Baptist and was founded around 1023 by Blessed Gerard to provide care for poor, sick or injured pilgrims to the Holy Land. After the Western Christian conquest of Jerusalem in 1099 during the First Crusade, the organization became a religious and military order under its own charter, and it was charged with the care and defense of the Holy Land. Following the conquest of the Holy Land by Islamic forces, the order operated from Rhodes, over which it was sovereign, and later from Malta where it administered a vassal state under the Spanish viceroy of Sicily. This particular article describes this history, up to the 1565 Siege of Malta (their current position). Condition: Complete article removed from within original Harper's Monthly Magazine.
