Erna Fergusson's Albuquerque drawings by Li Browne

Albuquerque: printed by Progress-Bulletin for Merle Armitage Editions, 1947. 87p., red frontispiece, rubricated title page, illustrated with b&w plates from drawings, first edition in 9x6 inch black cloth boards with red titling, and dust jacket. Cloth is edgeworn with bits of fray at the rims, corner-tips and bottom edge have lost a little sizing and color, generic bookplate fixed to the ffep and an odd little bookseller's fiche on back pastedown. The dj price-clipped with faded spine panel and a small chip-and-tear at the head which has been tacked inside with a tiny piece of clear tape. NB, jacket also seems short by a quarter-inch and may have been trimmed.

Features several short anecdotal chapters on Elfego Baca, and some original interview-exchanges with him; Baca retired to Albuquerque and coasted a little on his reputation as a dealer in death.
