Offered here is an original folio size sheet (14 x 11 inches) on heavy coated beige paper for the cover of the Mosher Press book, The Book of Ecclesiastes. Mosher took the design from Lucien's Pissarro's decorative cover for "The Book of Ruth and Esther," published by the Eragny Press in 1896, a rather common practice adopted by Mosher with respect to other designs and artwork. An exceedingly rare survival, one folio sheet printed in olive green. There are two parallel green lines adjacent to both front and back images, indicating this might be a proof rendering. Fine.
