    With Original Serigraphs, Each Signed by Classic Children's Illustrators

    [Maurice Sendak, Chris Van Allsburg, Barry Moser, et al., illustrators]. Mother Goose Collection. New York: Serigrafia, [n.d., 1990].

    Limited edition of 300 signed and numbered copies, of which this is number 170; complete with six serigraphs, each signed in pencil by the artist of the print. Single large sheets of Rives BFK measuring approximately 27 x 20.75 inches. Each serigraph illustrates a different Mother Goose rhyme, with contributions from the following artists: Maurice Sendak, (who provides the title illustration), Chris Van Allsburg, Barry Moser, Seymour Chwast, Daniel Pelavin, and Guy Billout; each is numbered and signed by the artist. Each print is in its original glassine folder with a title label. Also included is a single sheet of letterpress text with biographical notes on each of the artists, with additional text containing excerpts from the nursery rhymes printed on the inside front cover of the box. All are laid into the original cloth-backed folding clamshell box. Minor wear to the box. A fine bright copy.

    This is the most ambitious production from the fine art publishers Serigrafia. There were only 300 copies done, with 100 being retained for the use of the illustrators, 100 for Serigrafia, and 100 which were donated to raise funds for The Children's Health Fund, founded in 1988 by Paul Simon to provide health care to disadvantaged children. A beautiful copy.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
