During the 1980s I assembled a broken run of Master Drawings, the publication of the Master Drawings Association. A number of issues came from a bookseller who seems to have purchased art libraries wholesale in the New York City area. Twenty-one of these issues (1964-1973) were once the property of Paul Cadmus, and contain either his signature on the title page, or his book stamp on the title page or (sometimes) both the title page and cover.
I would like to locate someone interested in purchasing these issues to keep the Cadmus issues together as a group, because of their evidence that a contemporary American artist continued to study older traditions of figurative drawing.
For anyone who is interested, I can supply a list of the issues available, or other issues that do not contain evidence of Cadmus ownership.
