First edition, first printing. 4to. 130pp. Blue cloth w/gilt spine, housed in an illustrated jacket. The jacket has suffered a 2cm tear at its upper-right corner [please see pictures for context]. 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.
