80. WALL, Bernhardt. Bits from Wall's Etched Books. [Lime Rock, ca. 1932]. 13 etchings (plus cover etching), 6 signed by Wall, and one inscribed. Various colored inks. Laid paper. Original hand-bound plain grey boards, etching on upper cover (15.1 x 10.7 cm), plain grey dust wrapper, with Wall’s ink ms. title on spine. Cover moderately foxed, d.j. slightly scuffed and stained, interior and etchings very fine. Very affectionate signed presentation copy by Wall to the Walls' friends the Blodgetts, dated August 20, 1932.
Limitation not stated. Weber, p. 37: "This is a collection of plates etched between 1921 and 1929." The present copy varies in selection of plates from others we have seen; apparently Bits from Wall’s Etched Books were made up by Wall for the nonce, as the title would imply. ($400-800)
