First edition, first printing. 4to. 130pp. Blue cloth w/gilt spine, housed in an illustrated jacket, which is slightly scuffed at the edges. 34 wonderfully presented colour plates, as well as numerous photographs that serve to accompany the text. Text is provided by Alma Gilbert, a renowned expert on the life and work of Parrish, and chapters focus on the life of Parrish, his inspiration, a photographic study of ‘The Oaks’, and finally the Brown and Bigelow landscapes. A fascinating read produced by an authoritative voice on the subject. Rather scarce as it is out of print.
