(no dust jacket) [considerable exterior wear: heavy edgewear, soiling, bottom corner of spine worn (or chewed) away, etc.] (B&W photos; color and B&W plates) The exterior condition of this book is certainly sub-standard, but its content is unique: its one-time owner had an opportunity to have several of the artists whose work is represented within autograph the book next to reproductions of their paintings. The book contains a total of ten such signatures of the following four artists: Rigaud Benoit, "one of the most admired and successful of Haitian popular painters" (pages 82, 83, 84, 101, 102, 103); Louverture Poisson (plate H, facing page 83); Wilson Bigaud (page 87, next to a photo of himself); and Fernand Pierre (pages 124 and 125). Benoit and Bigaud, in particular, were among the more important members of the so-called "first generation" of Haitian artists; in the early 1950s, both contributed murals to the interior decoration of the Holy Trinity Cathedral in Port-au-Prince, which was unfortunately destroyed in the January 2010 earthquake. There appear to be at least five additional artists' signatures on the book's front endpaper, but due to some one-time moisture absorption, that page has become thoroughly stuck to the front pastedown -- a real shame. (The people who, over the years, mis-handled and mis-treated this book should be horse-whipped; I'll gladly supply the horse.) Signed by Illustrator
