Stone Soup.
(Oakland Eucalyptus Press 1989) - Folio. (6)ff. One of 17 copies. Illustrated throughout with linoleum block prints that have been altered so that the images in each book are slightly different. One two-page spread depicts the foolish villagers peeking over the edge of the soup pot with surprised expressions on their faces. Printed, illustrated, and written by Jean Butterfield. The tale was adapted from the children's book Stone Soup by Marcia Brown, and in the colophon Butterfield notes that "This story is about a basic lesson most of us learn in childhood from the wise women who are our mothers." The Eucalyptus Press was founded in 1930 by Miss Rosalind A. Keep, who was Editor of Publications and a professor of printing and English at Mills College. The Press continues in operation today as part of the college's book arts program. Very fine in boards covered with gray speckled handmade paper, evoking stone, and a linoleum-cut title label.
