Letters of John Marin.

New York Privately Printed for An American Place, 1931. 8vo (9.875” x 6.5”), gray cloth, gilt title at spine. Facsimile of an autograph letter bound in. Laid in photograph and newsprint portrait.

First edition, limited to 400 copies, this copy number 343. Inscribed by Marin on the half-title: “To Stanley Clifford write some more, John Marin.” A volume of letters written to Alfred Stieglitz between 1910 and 1930, reflecting the close relationship between the artist and the gallerist. Stieglitz was a crucial figure early in Marin’s career, giving him his first one-man exhibition in 1909 at gallery 291 and providing him with financial support. Many of the letters included here were written from Stonington and West Point, Maine. A photograph of Marin’s cottage at Cape Split, Maine, taken by Stanley Clifford in the fall of 1950 (and so inscribed on the verso) is laid in. Clifford was a Deer Isle, Maine antiquarian bookseller and a friend of Marin.

CONDITION: Near fine.
