Arthur J. Kasparian by Arthur J. Kasparian, 1962, 10 by 12.4 cm. Used, good with cockling from being damp and a set of tiny staple holes near the center top. From the library of a treasure hunter, the plate depicts scenes of pirate treasure, diving for sunken treasure, metal detectors, and mining for gold, with these lines from Pope: “Treasures, like insects, when concealed they lie; Wait but for wings, and in their season fly.” A busy, colorful offset-printed plate. Obviously a book lover, I found a classified ad (pictured) from Kasparian in the September 1961 issue of Desert, a magazine devoted to rock hounds, treasure hunters, and desert nature lovers (https://www.scribd.com/document/2402801/196109-DesertMagazine-1961-September).
