The condition of this piece has been graded as A-: Near Mint, very light signs of handling. Here is some supplemental information about the Lithograph: (these pages do not belong together!)Double page lithograph from Derriere le Miroir, no. 151-152, May 1965. Mourlot Number 432, published by Maeght in 1965. Page 6-7. Derriere le Miroir was the legendary art revue published in Paris by Aime Maeght, from 1946 through 1982. Artists who contributed special edition lithographs included Chagall, Miro, Giacometti and Calder. Often known by collectors simply as DLM, all issues of Derriere le Miroir are now scarce, and have become quite valuable.Creating a lithograph requires quick drawing without hesitations or alteration, a solid and bare composition, free shapes in a fluid space. Pursuing this, Miro uses black ink with a range of values and refined tones, reaching wild and playful effects. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        THE JUNGLE

      Limited Editions Club, Baltimore 1965 - Tall octavo (7" x 10-7/8") bound appropriately in embossed quarter pigskin and butcher paper sides; 384 pages. The First Illustrated Edition of this modern classic with a new preface by the author. Illustrated with 12 full-color wash-and-ink drawings, 8 full-page and 4 two-page spreads, and 33 two-color line drawings by Fletcher Martin. SIGNED by both the artist and the author on the colophon page. Of a total of 1500 copies printed, this copy is not numbered (in place of the number is written in ink "Office Copy") and bears the Club's blindstamp stating it is one of 15 presentation copies. An affordable way to acquire a signed copy of this important book, now somewhat uncommon in this condition. Sinclair's powerful exposure of the Chicago meat-packing industry is still a staple on the menus of many high school reading lists. His account of the social and human abuses of the yards, where packers used "everything about the hog except the squeal," led to major reforms in the industry and, along with UNCLE TOM'S CABIN, is one of the few American novels to have a lasting impact on the way we live our lives. Indeed, when this book was published Jack London said, "What Uncle Tom's Cabin did for black slaves, The Jungle has a large chance to do for the white slaves of today." President Theodore Roosevelt was so shocked by what he read that he made sure a clean meat act, the Pure Food and Drug Bill, was signed into law, popularizing at the time the rather obscure term "muckraker." Later in life, Sinclair said of his masterpiece: "I aimed at the public's heart and by accident I hit it in the stomach." Mild rubbing to the spine. Near Fine in a Near Fine slipcase with mild sunning [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
