300pp. Quarto [31 cm] 1/4 brown cloth with brown textured paper covered boards, a black ink stamped title on the spine, and a brown ink stamped vignette on the front cover. Good. The spine ends and edges of the covers are heavily rubbed and gently bumped. The underlying boards are exposed at the corners. Slight spine slant. There are a handful of small light stains on the covers. One of the stains is a partial moisture ring. There is also a small stain on the fore edge of the text block. The hinges are going. There is a previous owner's name on the front pastedown, and the front free endsheet and flyleaf have almost completely been torn out. There are large scribbles in pencil on the last 4 pages. Tanned pages.


Loomis taught at the American Academy of Art, in Chicago, during the 1930s, and that it was there he fine-tuned the teaching techniques that he presented in his first book, 'Fun With a Pencil,' in 1939.
