Baskin, Leonard. JACK PLAIN DEALING. FO'S173. Woodcut, 1952. Artist's Proof aside from the edition of 50. Inscribed "AP" in pencil, lower left, and signed in pencil, lower right. 3 7/8 x 7 inches, 104 x 177 mm. (image), 8 3/4 x 11 3/4 inches, 223 x 284 mm. (sheet). Fern & O'Sullivan were unable to locate an impression to illustrate in the catalogue, which may account for the incorrect dimensions given in their entry; it may also suggest that the edition of 50 was not printed in full, as this early print is not commonly found. A few inking spots in the margin, verso, else in excellent condition.
