The Garth Danielson Christmas Booke
(n.p.), Boowat, 1976. A small book by Danielson on the meaning of Christmas, meant to serve as a Christmas card. With tipped-in illustrations by Riley. Inscribed by Danielson to Riley: "Nice to have you aboard my magnum opus. Your decadent friend, Garth Danielson." Riley was an up-and-coming young artist, who had been illustrating fantasy novels and would later branch out to mainstream book illustration, including a collaboration with Pulitzer Prize-winning poet James Tate. By all appearances a handmade book; at the very least rare, perhaps unique. Clothbound; near fine without dust jacket, as issued. [#030706] $250

All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
