Donald Judd Catalogue Raisonne of Paintings, Objects and Wood-Blocks 1960 - 1974 (Inscribed)

Ottawa: National Gallery of Canada, 1975. First edition. Hardcover. Large hardbound quarto in dustwrapper. Judd's catalogue raisonne with 355 works made between 1 August 1960 when he moved his studio at 53 East 19th Street and 1 July 1974. Essay by Roberta Smith. Curated by Brydon Smith. Text in English and French. 320 pp. Profusely illustrated. Book has a few small age spots to page edges else a near fine copy in the scarce red cloth binding. The matching dustwrapper has a tape mend, some small wear at edges and shows some of the typical toning to spine color. Overall the wrapper is in good to very good condition. This copy stands out for two reasons: the book has been INSCRIBED BY JUDD and dated in 1979. Inscribed copies of the hard-bound edition of this book rarely come to market (the 2006 Wright Art + Design auction sold a copy for $15,600 hammer, just to give some idea of value). Secondly, afixed to the front endpaper beneath Judd's inscription is a postcard entitled "Bird's Eye View, Marfa, Texas". This is the outdoor museum well known for its holdings of Judd's work. It is unknown who attached this card to this copy of the book, but possibly by the artist himself. Provenance of this copy will be provided upon sale. Very Good + / good +. Item #22961

Price: $10,000.00
