BASKIN, Leonard. TEN WOODCUTS. Boston, Massachusetts: R. M. Light and Company, (1961). A  page catalogue that features illustrations of ten Baskin woodcuts, giving the title, dimensions, date of creation, and price of each, along with a half-page letterpress statement by artist. Title-page and colophon printed in black with red ornaments. This is one of an unnumbered edition of 1500 copies printed at the Gehenna Press, in Northampton, Massachusetts, in April 1961. 12 7/8 by 9 7/8 inches. Blue paper wrappers, with title printed on front, stapled. The wrappers are very sun-faded and show a bit of edgewear, though it is clean and just about fine internally. Laid-in are three additional Baskin items from the period, though unrelated to the catalogue described above: 1. An illustrated broadside announcing an exhibition of sculpture and drawings by Baskin at the Grace Borgenicht Gallery, in New York City, in May 1962. Red (type) and black (image: a male nude from behind) on light weight paper. 12 by 9 1/8 inches. Fine but for a short crease to one corner. 2. An illustrated broadside calling for submissions for a planned exhibition at the Fogg Museum, at Harvard University, entitled "The Scholar as Collector." Black and white. The image reproduces Mantegno at Erimitani, from the portfolio "Fifteen Woodcuts" (1952). 9 1/4 by 12 3/4 inches. Fine. The exhibition was announced in October 1958 and was on display in February and March 1959. 3. An original print with image reproduced on a poster advertising an exhibition of drawings and sculpture at the Boris Mirski Gallery, in Boston, in November 1964. Printed in red (type) and black (image: a large bird with outstretched wings atop a man's head). 18 1/4 by 24 inches, folds to 9 by 12 inches. The very tips of the corners are bent. Near fine. For the catalogue, two broadsides, and a poster:.
