146 pp, oblong (10" H x 13 3/4" D) hard cover in slipcase. Profusely illustrated in colour and b&w. "Here is the working life of Lawren Harris. Painting is not an entertainment or an occupation for him; it is a communicative way of life. The pai ntings have been chosen to show the range of the work produced during the years 1910 to 1968. Writing was, for him, a means of clarifying thought, of sorting out observations, and of sifting ideas. The text is made up of selections from hi s w r i t i n gs - published articles, notebooks written between the years 1920 and 1960, and 'Contrasts', a volume of poems published in 1922." This is a heavy volume, requiring extra postage. Slight browning to spine. Slipcase has light to mod er a te e dg e we ar , light fading to color at front edges Very Good+/Very Good-
