[Signed block print from Gods' Man]

[New York]: [Jonathan Cape & Harrison Smith], [1929]. An original print from Ward's first and most famous wordless novel.

Fine. Item #52160

The image depicts Ward's artist protagonist painting in the grass with his son, in one of the book's happier moments. Presumably printed in a minuscule print run as a keepsake from the author and publisher. Gods' Man was the first American wordless novel.
