Stated first Middle Atlantic Press printing, October, 1986. This work has been described as a visit to the small patch of Pennsylvania that Andrew Wyeth and his family called home, in the Brandywine River valley of the southeast part of the state near Chadds Ford. Mr. Wyeth relied on the buildings, landscapes and people of the valley for much of the subject matter for his paintings. The area is depicted in photos by James A. Warner and Margaret J. White (and a few Wyeth paintings), and text borrowed from Henry David Thoreau to describe Andrew Wyeth's world. --- An oversize (14 in. wide x 11.25 in. tall) volume in full maroon cloth-covered boards with gilt-stamped cover and spine titling; maroon endpapers. Dust jacket with one of the photographers' wrap-around photos. --- With a remainder mark rubberstamped to lower textblock edge, otherwise this book is clean, bright and tightly bound. Unclipped jacket with a little soiling and rubbing, otherwise remaining bright and intact; protected in clear removable mylar wrapper.
