Publisher: The Grolier Club,, New York:

Publication Date: 2011

Binding: pictorial wrappers.

Edition: First Edition..


large octavo, Pt 1, 86 pp; Pt 2, 60 pp. The catalogue documents a unique husband-wife collecting team: Hersh and Fern Cohen. Hersh collects prints created between 1900 and World War II, with an emphasis on the Depression era, while Fern Cohen focuses on English, Continental, and American botanical books from the seventeenth through the nineteenth centuries, with illustrations by some of the most accomplished botanical artists of the day. The stark black-and-white prints of cities, their inhabitants, and the turmoil of the 1930s contrast vividly with gorgeously colored images of flowers and fruit in peaceful bucolic settings: an unlikely yet compelling combination. Bound dos-a-dos and designed by Jerry Kelly, the book contains forewords by the collectors, followed by catalogues of the joint member exhibition of the collections of Hersh and Fern Cohen held at the Grolier Club September 7-November 4, 2011.
