New York: George Braziller, 1959. Small 4to. Original pictorial wraps. Some rubbing and soil. Light edgewear. Very good. INSCRIBED by de Kooning to front endpaper: "To Frances and Sid - / What a wonderful / time we / had -- / Good Winter / Love / Bill." (Item ID: 13247)

The first monograph published on de Kooning, inscribed by the artist to prominent art collectors Sydney and Francis Lewis of Virginia. While various limited editions from the artist are relatively common, books genuinely inscribed by de Kooning are scarce, esp. so with so warm an inscription. Much of the Lewis' collection was dispersed by Christie's in 2000, at which time the auction house has this to say about the couple: "Since the 1960s, Sydney and Frances Lewis of Richmond, VA, have been in the forefront of national and international collectors of Post-War painting and sculpture and late 19th and 20th century decorative arts. Their keen knowledge resulting from astute observation, incessant research, and an unquenchable appetite and love for art enabled the Lewises to build an incredible personal collection ranging from Emile GallÈ to Willem de Kooning to Gaetano Pesce, all of the highest quality."
