Crumb, R.
Sketchbook, Volumes 1-4 in slipcase with signed plate
Seattle: Fantagraphic Books, 1992-1994. First Edition. Paperback. Very good. First four R. Crumb sketchbooks in slipcase with pencil-signed black-and-white plate: "This plate has been specially designed to accompany the R. Crumb Sketchbook Volumes 1 through 4 slipcase, limited to 200 and signed by the artist." All volumes quarto (28 cm), in colorful pictorial wrappers, and unpaginated: Vol 1 1964 to mid-'65, Vol 2 Mid 1965 to Early '66, Vol 3 1966, Vol 4 Late 1966 to Mid '67. All paperback, copyright pages indicate a hardcover series was printed as well. Slipcase is burgundy with gilt titling and illustration. Slipcase in fine condition, plate near fine with very slight crimp at upper right corner. Vol 1 has slight crimp to upper right corner; Vol 2 lower corner of front wrapper with faint crease; Vol 3 has light bumping at tail of spine; and Vol 4 with very slight edge wear. These volumes appear to have been published in single issues (Volumes 1 & 2 in 1992, Volume 3 in 1993, Volume 4 in 1994) and then later gathered into the limited edition boxed set with the signed plate. The entire series of sketchbooks runs to 12 volumes, with various editions printed by other publishers. Scarce in this format: No copies available in the trade, none in OCLC, no auction records. From the estate of William "Gatz" Hjortsberg, author, screenwriter and enthusiastic collector of toys, books and all things eclectic.
