AN IMAGE OF BARNS

NY: Funk and Wagnall's, 1966. 1st Edition. Hardcover. First edition with an atypical and personal sketch by Sloane on teh ffe. Typically, Sloane sketches covered bridges or tools or whatever is the subject of his book to the inscribee. In this case, Sloane has sketched a Christmas greeting from one couple to another which recalls a shared vacation "(on) the banana boat" and a shared joke about a formation of clouds that resembles a woman's breast and torso; the observing couple, looking skyward, proclaim "look there's a cumulus boobilus". All in all, highly unusual for a Sloane sketch. Dustjacket a little bit worn. A solid - and collectible - copy. VG+ / Very Good. Item #013388

Price: $300.00
