Robert Flaherty Photogravures of Eskimos
Revillon Freres, New York - [circa 1925], 1st Edition. () Very good. 6pp. Original grey paper covered, fold over cardboard box. Box is quite worn. Inside is a heavy paper folder to hold the prints. This folder is heavily stained on the outside. Inside are six loose photogravure plates with the original margins being 33.5 X 50 cm. The image sizes vary. Three images are full size and three have had the margins cut down. These three images were matted. All images still have ample margins but the three trimmed images vary in size. Four of the six still have the original tipped on paper label. The three wide margin images are generally very clean with only minor edge fraying. The three trimmed images have a bit of staining from the mat with one image having a small old tide line which really does not effect the image. Overall they are very attractive as a set. Also included is a photocopy of the origninal insert which accompanied the set. The insert states that the six images were chosen from a group of 18 and were made during a series of five expeditions over eight years. Contents as follows: the Huskie; Eskimo Kayak in Northeastern Hudson Bay; the Hunter, Eskimo in the rough ice-fields; Nyla and child; Allegoo; and Tooktoo. The set has its faults but is very scarce on the market these days. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
