4to. Original yellow cloth boards, housed in an illustrated jacket. With 16 colour plates and numerous b/w illustrations. 161pp. The book is in very good condition. The jacket’s edges are a little scuffed and the cloth’s spine somewhat worn, otherwise there are no real faults to speak of. First edition. Text is in English, French and Portuguese. A fascinating and rather rare monograph on the self-trained Brazilian artist Miranda. Anatole Jakovsky, known more commonly by his nickname “Papa des Naifs” [Father of the Naive], provides the introduction. An insightful study on an artist relatively little is known about. Rare and in excellent condition.
