A SUITE OF EIGHT LARGE FOLIO ORIGINAL COLOR LITHOGRAPHS BY CHAIM GROSS (the other three lithographs, "Chanukah", "Rosh Hashoneh" and "Pesach", are missing)
48.3 x 63.5 x 0 cm
EACH SIGNED BY HAND
Complete with two leaves of explanatory text for each lithograph. One of only 200 sets with the lithographs printed on fine Rives wove paper, each one numbered "79/200", dated, titled, and signed in pencil.
FINE AND BRIGHT, with no defects. While this set has been reproduced many times, none of the reproductions come close to matching the beauty of these original lithographs, which of course have never been reprinted (the stones were effaced after printing this edition).
