    Two Special Hannes Bok Illustrated Items, including:
    The Gnome Press' Fantasy Calendar for 1949. (New York: Gnome Press, 1948), Thirteen 7.5" x 10" black & white wall-mountable calendar pages on heavy card stock, unbound in blue-green paper cover. Each month is illustrated by Hannes Bok, Edd Cartier, or Frank Paul. Each page shows some very minimal edge wear, but in mostly fine condition.
    Hannes Bok Illustration Proof Set for The Blind Spot and The Spot of Life. (Philadelphia: The Prime Press, nd), Ten 5.75" x 9.5" black & white Bok illustrations, unbound in tattered brown paper envelope. One of 150 proof sets produced, of which only 125 were for sale. The Blind Spot was published in 1951 with these Bok illustrations, but The Spot of Life was never published. The first illustration in this set is signed by Bok, though we believe it is a printed signature. The illustrations themselves are in fine condition, with only a couple of them showing the most minimal corner wear. A truly rare opportunity to attain two rare Bok items with one bid. From the Ventura Collection.
