"Of the eighty lithographs reproduced here, nearly fifty have never been reproduced in book form before. The present volume is thus the first complete collection and catalogue of Benton's prints. Each example, from The Station of 1929 to The Little Fisherman of 1967, is fully described. Included also are the artist's own comments on many of the individual works, and these, together with the lithographs themselves, reveal the seriousness and devotion with which Benton has portrayed the American scene." -- front flap
