Rochester: Rochester Savings Bank, 1931. First edition (46 pp.), small octavo, 19.5 cm. Thirteen full-page wood-cuts by Norman Kent illustrating events in Rochester’s (and the bank’s) history-- e.g., the Main Falls, the First Main Bridge, the Four Corners in 1827, at the Pilot Coach Office. Tan paper over boards, brown titles; still in original folding card envelope (small tears to flap). Kent (1903- 1972) was a printmaker, watercolourist, and long-time editor of The American Artist. A sizable collection of his work is held at Syracuse University. They didn’t form an association but Rockwell Kent, Norman Rockwell, and Norman Kent probably should have, just for the fun of it. As new.
