New York: Jonathan Cape and Harrison Smith, 1929. Original woodcut proof (15 x 10 cm plus large margins), with printed tissue overlay affixed by flap on verso. Fine, in publisher's envelope with return address. The upper panel of the envelope is darkened from proximity to something, not affecting the print. According to the publisher's caption, this is one of "100 proofs taken directly from Mr. Ward's wood block and sent to you with compliments of his publisher." It is signed below the image by Ward in pencil. While the edition is generous, the mode of this item's distribution, as a promotional item for Ward's first novel without words, resulted in a somewhat larger attrition rate than would normally be expected.

London, Jonathan Cape, (1932). . In diesem seinem ersten Holzschnitt-Buch (erstmals 1929 erschienen) vermischte Ward Jugendstil u. Expressionismus, um von den Mühen des Künstlers mit seiner Kunst zu erzählen, den trügerischen Verlockungen von Geld u. Ruhm, denen er nur durch das Erreichen einer neuen Unschuld entkommen kann. Dieses Buch war zugleich eine Verbeugung vor Frans Masereel u. Otto Nückel. - Lynd Kendall Ward (1905-1985), amerikanischer Künstler u. Autor, illustrierte etwa 200 Kinderbücher u. Bücher für Erwachsene. Von Frans Masereel beeindruckt, übernahm er dessen Idee, Geschichten ohne Worte zu erzählen, u. schuf 6 "graphic novels", sogen. "silent books" in denen er Geschichten nur durch seine Holzschnittkunst erzählte. - Mäßig berieben, Rückenschild mit e. Wasserfleckchen; Widmung auf Vortitel
