School Days by Eric Sloane

   This is the second of a small number of highly collectible Eric Sloane books in very good to excellent condition to this site. These came from multiple collections from individuals who were well known to the Sloane community and I had great respect for all of them. Knowing them and their support for the Eric Sloane Museum and the Friends of the Eric Sloane Museum, I have attractively priced each book, with 100% of the proceeds to go to the Noah Blake Cabin Fund established by the Friends of the Eric Sloane Museum.

School Days by Eric Sloane. Slipcase collection containing Little Red School House and ABC of Early Americana. One of the better slipcases I have seen – some tanning to edges and minor losses to corner. Books are both like new inside and out, still making a cracking sound when you open them. Appears as if this set was shelved as part of a collection, seldom if ever opened. $35 including free shipping.

A Friendly Race by Eric Sloane, N.A.  A beautiful sailing scene depicted with skill and evocative of a windy afternoon spent in friendly competion.  Great sense of movement, excellent cloud work, and a bold and striking palette come together in this fantastic work.  Professionally framed in a modern take on the classic silver frame.  Nicely sized at 22″ wide and 18″ tall (approximate framed dimensions).

Eighty an American Souvenir by Eric Sloane

     I will be adding a small number of highly collectible Eric Sloane books in very good to excellent condition to this site. These came from multiple collections from individuals who were well known to the Sloane community and I had great respect for all of them. Knowing them and their support for the Eric Sloane Museum and the Friends of the Eric Sloane Museum, I have attractively priced each book, with 100% of the proceeds to go to the Noah Blake Cabin Fund established by the Friends of the Eric Sloane Museum.

The first book I’ll offer is Eighty An American Souvenir by Eric Sloane, N.A. (1905-1985).  This is perhaps Eric’s most beautiful book, lavishly illustrated with his pen and ink drawings and large plates of his color all paintings.  Dust jacket is not clipped, price intact.  First Edition.  Binding is tight.  Appears to be a book that was seldom, if ever, opened.  This book was part of a substantial collection of very high quality collectors-grade Eric Sloane books and as such is one of the better copies in terms of condition that you will find.   

Priced at $35.00, which includes free shipping the continental United States.
