First edition. With a Kent bookplate signed by Merle Armitage and a dedication of this book to Claire Troth, by Armitage. Laid in is a fine typed letter by Kent to Armitage dated March, 1925, discussing his artwork. "I have had a couple of letters from Mr. Harrison. While I would like very much to sell him a picture for the Museum [Los Angles Museum of Art], I cannot possibly meet his terms. I would consider it very unfair to those steady patrons of mine who are accustomed to pay more. I offered him a discount of 33 2/3%; that considering that I do get for my pictures the price that I ask seems to be generous enough."
