    With Eleven Signed Original Color Lithographs, One of Only 200 Copies

    Chaim Gross. The Jewish Holidays. Paris and New York: n.p., 1969.

    Edition limited to 200 copies on BFK Rives paper, this being number 159, with a suite of eleven original color lithographs, each signed by the artist. Large folio. Foreword and explanatory text by Rabbi Avraham Soltes. Lithography assistance by Picasso-collaborator Marcel Salinas, and typography by Pierre Jean Mathan.

    Thirteen loose uncut signatures, as issued, with eleven color lithographs on loose sheets measuring approximately 25 x 19 inches. All laid into a gilt-stamped blue cloth portfolio and housed in the original clamshell box. Fine.

    "In these lithographs, Gross [1904-1991] recaptures the dreams of his childhood so that everyone in a sense may share his experiences. For those to whom this vanished world is mere history, he offers an emotional insight as well as aesthetic pleasure. These festivals live today. Through movement and modeling [...] he makes them come alive for modern man" (Rabbi Soltes, in his notes). A lovely publication.

    You reach a customer base that is in many ways completely unknown to the major auction houses, and your marketing to this base is as professional as one could hope for. As I continue to wind down my holdings.
