Now out-of-print, this is a stunning tribute to the life of Laura Gilpin (1891-1979), one of the preeminent chroniclers of life in the American Southwest. Designed by Eleanor Caponigro with tri-tone reproductions, this retrospective monograph is the first major study of Gilpin's life and work. When published, Martha A. Sandweiss was the curator of the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth, which houses the Gilpin archives. She is currently professor of American studies and history at Amherst College. The publication of this book coincided with a major exhibition in 1986. Signed by Martha Sandweiss.
This beautiful first-edition monograph is now available for the special price of $65. It comes shrink-wrapped in the publisher's original cardboard box. If the book appears to be sold out, please email us to inquire about the availability of additional copies.
