Printed paper portfolio containing 21 loose sheets, including one page of letterpress and 20 halftones after original works by the author. Inscribed on front cover: "A Ben Shan [sic] / mio maestro e mi [illegible]," signed by the artist and dated in 1964. From the library of Ben and Bernarda Bryson Shahn, with estate label tipped on inside front cover. Attractive, privately-issued portfolio of Minei's drawings from the 1960s, mostly large-scale portraits and life studies rendered in ink wash.
