Five Hundred Years of Women’s Work: The Lisa Unger Baskin Collection

Naomi L. Nelson, Lauren Reno, and Lisa Unger Baskin, eds. The Grolier Club and Duke University, 2019. 9½ x 11, 160 pp., 179 illustrations. Accompanies the eponymous exhibition held at the Grolier Club December 10, 2019 – February 8, 2020. By bringing together materials from across the centuries, Baskin reveals what has historically been hidden—that women have long pursued a startling range of careers and vocations and that through their work they have supported themselves, their families, and the causes they believed in.

One of 95 deluxe copies, signed and numbered by Lisa Unger Baskin, and specially bound by Sarah Creighton in quarter black morocco over red paste paper boards, red calf spine onlay titled in gilt, and stamped in gilt on upper and lower covers, in slipcase: $500.
