Death of a Salesman, Certain Private Conversations in Two Acts and a Requiem
New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1984. Limited Edition. Leather. Fine. Baskin, Leonard. no. 1107 of 1500, 4to - over 9.75" - 12" tall, 167 pp., signed by author and illustrator. Arthur Miller was an American playwright, essayist, and figure in the twentieth-century American Theatre. In Miller's more than thirty plays, which have won him a Pulitzer Prize and multiple Tony Awards, he puts in question "death and betrayal and injustice and how we are to account for this little life of ours." For nearly six decades, Miller has been creating characters that wrestle with power conflicts, personal and social responsibility, the repercussions of past actions, and the twin poles of guilt and hope. (N. B. info from The National Endowment for the Humanities website). ***ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATOR: Leonard Baskin (1922-2000) was an artistic genius whose works almost defy categorization. Eminent in sculpting, illustration, printmaking and also as a typographer and printer, he pursued multiple art forms all of which have, as an underlying thread, social consciousness and a high regard for humanity (N.B., above information from the website of the Galerie St. Etienne). Mr. Baskin founded The Gehenna Press in 1942 while at Yale University, taking his inspiration from William Blake's example as both a poet and an artist/bookmaker. ***DESCRIPTION: Bound by Gray Parrot in full rust-brown Nigerian goatskin with gilt lettering on the spine, five tissue-guarded etchings by Leonard Baskin; printed by the Wild Carrot Letterpress, set in American and English monotype Bulmer on mould-made Cartiere Enrico Magnani paper; pagination: (5) - (165), blank (166), colophon (167); 10.5" tall, signed by author Arthur Miller and illustrator Leonard Baskin, Limited Edition no. 1107 of 1500; slipcase bound in grey paper with gilt lettering on the spine. ***CONDITION: Book is in fine condition with the leather binding smooth and supple, the colour on the spine deep (not sunned), corners straight and unrubbed, solid hinges and a strong text block, clean and bright inside and entirely free of prior owner markings.
