Dog -  COOK

Wood engraving, 1929, Duffy 107, edition 100 (forty printed). 6 1/8 x 3 1/4 in. Signed in pencil and inscribed, "Greetings from Howard Cook - my self portrait." This is a very fine impression printed on thin japan paper and mounted at the top to a heavier support sheet. Fine condition. This was possibly intended as a holiday card and with the addition of "self portrait," I suspect the title of simply "Dog," does not tell the whole story here.

Eagle Dance -  COOK

Eagle Dance
Wood engraving, 1942, Duffy 201, edition 200. 10 x 8 in. Signed and dated in pencil. This is a superb impression in fine condition. The margins are full. This print was published by the Woodcut Society of Kansas City. The print is still in the folder it was published in and it's attached at the two top corners, verso. Duffy cites ten impressions in museum collections.

New England Church -  COOK

New England Church
Wood engraving, 1931, Duffy 161, edition 50. 11 3/8 x 8 3/8 in. Signed and dated in pencil. This is a very fine impression on a cream Japanese paper. The margins are full and the condition is fine apart from old hinges on the verso at top, well away from the image. The church depicted here is the First Congregational Church in Springfield, MA. This historic church was built in 1819. There were actually three church buildings at this site before the 1819 structure, the first built in 1637.

Wood Interior -  COOK

Wood Interior
Wood engraving, 1931, Duffy 171, edition about 150 (?) 6 1/2 x 4 1/8 in. Signed, dated and numbered in pencil. This is a fine impression printed on thin light cream wove paper. The margins are wide and the condition is fine. (There's just the faintest suggestion of toning within an earlier mat opening.) This is from the deluxe edition of 100 from The Checkerboard published by Weyhe Gallery in 1931.
