    Signed by Artist Leonard Baskin
    Rodolphe Bresdin and Odilon Redon. Bresdin to Redon, Six Letters 1870 to 1881. [n.p.]: Gehenna Press, 1969.

    Limited to 100 copies of which this one is unnumbered and marked "artists copy" by Leonard Baskin and additionally signed by him. Octavo. Unpaginated. Edited by Roseline Bacou, translated by Seymour S. Weiner.

    Publisher's full tan leather with gold stamping. Japanese paper, untrimmed along fore- and bottom edge. The etching bound into the book is signed by Baskin, but the additional signed plate typically laid in is missing from this copy. Minimal rubbing to spine ends and corners. The title page lettering is printed in black and red. Baskin has written a notation of "crooked" next to this due to the fact that the black lettering on this copy appears misaligned next to the red. Evidently a printing error occurred. Book has suffered water damage along the lower edge. Endpapers and numerous pages show dampstains and all the pages exhibit puckering. Many pages blank in what appears to be a proof copy. A beautifully bound edition in generally very good condition.
