    Sloane, Eric:  A Reverence for Wood.  New York: Wifred Funk, Inc, 1965. First Edition. Fine in decorated pinkish cloth covered boards with black text on the spine and a sketch of a barn under construction on the front board. A small quarto of 10 3/4 by 7 3/4 inches with a small, faint one inch long stain to the fore edge of the text block. In a very near fine, price clipped dust jacket with a 1/4 inch chip from the upper edge of the front panel. Signed, inscribed and dedicated "to Mary Louise and Steve Kaptain from the Reids \ 1965" and illustrated with a covered bridge. One of Eric Sloane's most endearing books describing in both written and visual detail how the early settlers utilized the most abundant resource available to them. This is one of the cleanest copies that we have seen! This is a book about trees and the wood they produce; but, viewed from the standpoint of 18th century America as wood was the most prevalent source of building material. Although the last ten pages of the book are devoted to text and illustrations to help the uninitiated identify "American Trees" the bulk of the book focuses on the tools and buildings which were made from this abundant resource. The hundreds of black and white (pen and ink) drawings done by Sloane provide a remarkable insight into the use of some tools and products which today can only be described as obscure. Sloane's observations provide a fascinating glimpse at the life and times of pioneering days of the 18th and early 19th centuries.

The intent of this book is to memorialize "the oldest and most profound medium of human communication - black lines on a white paper background." In anticipation of doing a book like this, for many years Sloane set aside many of his pen and ink drawings which together in this format provide an autobiographic reverie of this artist/author's life. A great many of the illustrations which appear in this 64 page book are architectural in nature showing barns, sheds, stone fences, covered bridges, toll houses, awning details, all of which serve to graphically explain the use of "shapes of shadow and shapes of light."

  • Sloane, Eric:  Recollections in Black and White.  New York: Walker and Company, 1974. First Edition, First printing. Fine in white paper covered boards with black text on the spine and a reproduction of Eric Sloane's signature on the front board. In a very good+ dust jacket due to a 2" long closed tear with related creases on the rear panel & a 1" closed tear on the rear panel and two smaller closed tears on the front panel. This edition preceded the more widely seen edition by Funk & Wagnals distributed in 1978. The intent of this book is to memorialize "the oldest and most profound medium of human communication - black lines on a white paper background." In anticipation of doing a book like this, for many years Sloane set aside many of his pen and ink drawings which together in this format provide an autobiographic reverie of this artist/author's life. A great many of the illustrations which appear in this 64 page book are architectural in nature showing barns, sheds, stone fences, covered bridges, toll houses, awning details, all of which serve to graphically explain the use of "shapes of shadow and shapes of light."
