"One of the greatest and best loved artists of the early 20th century, Maxfield Parrish (1870 – 1966) has become a classic figure representing the “Golden Age of Illustration” in America.
"This magnificent album is not only an outstanding contribution to the understanding of a major American artist, but also represents the most comprehensive collection of Parrish’s work ever published.
"Here are 250 reproductions, 200 in full color, of his best paintings and murals, book and magazine illustrations, posters and advertisements – works that are extremely scarce and valuable today.
"Included here are selections from each area of Parrish’s art: his famous book illustrations in such classics as Arabian Nights, Knickerbocker’s History of New York, and Mother Goose in Prose; his magazine covers from Life, Collier’s, Harper’s, Scribner’s, etc.; his commercial artworks including the celebrated Mazda Calendars he did for General Electric; and his most famous murals, posters, and paintings."
