Limited to 85 numbered copies with 75 for sale. Preface and introductory essay, with endnotes, by the author, followed by a complete "Bibliography of the Book Illustrations of Lynd Ward." Bibliography and acknowledgments follow text. Tipped-in color frontispiece, tipped-in illustrations throughout text. Black and white illustrations. Published to accompany the exhibition "Illustrated by Lynd Ward, From the Collection of Robert Dance" at the Grolier Club November 2015-January 2016. "Considering the fame Ward achieved during the 1930s and his role as a book illustrator for five decades, it is surprising that a comprehensive study of his life and career has not appeared. This book does not promise to be either. Rather, it is an introduction to his position as one of America's foremost book illustrators and the first attempt to compile a check list of his published works." --from the preface. Errata sheet laid in.
