Crosby, Everett U.
Eastman Johnson at Nantucket. His Paintings and Sketches of Nantucket People and Scenes.

Nantucket Everett U. Crosby: 1944. Limited to 200 copies for private distribution.

A very nice copy of one of the rarest and most desirable books in the bibliography of American art reference. Johnson worked on Nantucket for some 20 years, and Crosby was one of the island's most diligent historians. This was an attempt to document all the paintings and sketches Eastman made of the island.

Hardcover. 8.5"x11", 67 pages, 46 full-page b/w plates, 1 b/w illustration and a portrait frontispiece of the artist. A little wear to the covers, a penciled note is taped to the endpaper stating "For Bobbie from the author's son".
