Boston: The Boston Public Library, 1977. First edition. Paperback. Near Fine. [Clare Leighton] Fletcher, William Dolan. Clare Leighton, An Exhibition: American Sheaves, English Seed Corn. Boston: The Boston Public Library, not dated (c.1977). Staple-bound wraps, 7 by 10-inches, 28 pp. Near fine with only faint signs of wear to the covers. Five pages of text followed by the catalogue of the exhibition held at the Boston Publish Library, with eight illustrations and two photographs. A highly respected wood engraver and painter, Leighton literally wrote the book on her art, Wood Engravings and Woodcuts (1932). While she only designed 15 bookplates from 1922 to 1969 (Butler, p. 100), they are highly sought-after. No bookplates are depicted in this booklet, but it does offer a nice introduction to the woman and her art. (eph) First Edition.
