A rare, truncated publisher's dummy copy of this noted, critical study of Motherwell's major works. In the same illustrated boards as the trade edition, though with the rear board shortened and incorporating the lettered spine to accomodate the thin volume, which holds only approximately 15% of the 251pp. found in the commercial released version. With brown endpapers and 18 printed and illustrated leaves.
