The Bay and River Delaware

Book. Book condition: Very Good. Very Good. Hardcover Signed by Author(s) 4to - over 9 - 12" tall SIGNED, LIMITED EDITION: "This is a limited edition of which this is no. 800. Jack Lewis 1980." "Jack Lewis has devoted a lifetime to describing both with paint and brush the byways of the American Scene. N. C. Wyeth, the popular illustrator and father of Andrew Wyeth remakes of him in the introduction to the first Delaware Scene: 'It is an especial solace and stimulation to come upon these pictures as presented by this sensitive artist (Jack Lewis). His paintings are modest and unassuming and are born of sincerity and great sympathy. This collection of reproductions from the original watercolors offers to anyone of discernment a glimpse into the artist's heart, and through it an appealing record of a section of the land, the people and villages he loves. 'If one insists upon the obvious and sensational in art, then this collection will have little to offer indeed. These works by Mr. Lewis are not florid, neither are they casual; but to all those who will attune themselves to their modest and simple cadences, these pictures will promptly uncover hidden measures of nostalgic charm and picturesque appeal.'.." Lewis includes watercolors and drawings of scenes in Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York. Most are centered around the Delaware River and Delaware Bay. Illustrations include 18 full-color watercolors and over 100 drawings in black-and-white. 187 pages. Book is in VERY GOOD or better condition. Dust jacket is in VERY GOOD or better condition. Dust jacket is in protective plastic wrapper.
