THE BOOK OF ADAM TO MOSES

(New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1987).

FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING. A retelling in clear modern English of the stories of the Bible from Genesis to the death of Moses. The transposition is graceful and precise, it is far from the typically “dumbed-down” bible stories one often sees written for children. Baskin’s black and white drawings are evocative, powerful and dramatic. Item #22402

Powerfully illustrated throughout in black and white by Leonard Baskin. 4to, original white buckram decorated in blind on the upper cover and lettered in gilt on the spine. In the original dustjacket. x, 115pp. A very fine copy in a jacket with just a bit of age evidence.
