[Cleveland: Kokoon Arts Club], 1930. First Edition. Softcover. Fine. [4] pp. Sheet folded into quarters. Fine.

Invitation to the eighth annual Kokoon Club art auction. William Sommer (1867-1949), a founder of the Kokoon Club and leader of the early 20th-century "Cleveland School" of artists, provides the lithographic cover illustration of a shirt-sleeved artist flanked by a horse presenting a handful of works to the viewer. The picture, though unsigned, features Sommer's unmistakable drawing style and trademark subjects. The 1930 auction, which offered a variety of Club members' modernist paintings and sketches, was the first to take place at the Club's new headquarters at East 40th Street and Carnegie Avenue. The sale was chaired by Philip Kaplan, whose vast collection of Kokoon Club art, papers, and masquerade costumes were featured in the 2009 Kent State Museum exhibition, THE KOKOON ARTS CLUB: CLEVELAND REVELS! The fourth page of the invitation prints the 1930 membership of the Club, which included such notable figures as Henry Keller, Jospeh Jicha, Leonard Hannah, Jr., August Biehle, Carl Moellman, L. Harl Copeland, and James H. Minter. Rare.
