Seller ID: 1178
Toronto: Clarke Irwin, 1966. Limited edition, No. 794 of 1000, in two volumes (xxvi, 332; portfolio). Folio (28 cm.), in blue cloth, gilt titles to spine of text volume, matching slipcase. Twelve colour reproductions of Carr's work tipped in to text volume, duplicates mounted on heavy card, loose in separate portfolio as issued. With a biographical sketch by Ira Dilworth and an introductory essay by Lauren Harris to accompany Carr's journal entries, which begin in 1927 with her meeting Fred Varley in Vancouver on her way east by train. Even if you have never before seen a painting by Emily Carr nor read a word she has written, the twelve paintings reproduced here, together with her characteristically energetic and original writing, testify to her great talent, her independence of mind, and her determination to 'work, work, work!' This copy as new.
