Folio, black cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, 114 pp. Near-Fine, with neat former-owner stamp; in a Near-Fine, mylar protected dust jacket. From dust jacket: Leon Gaspard is not just the story of Leon Gaspard the painter. This story colorfully recaptures all the adventures and delightful highlights of the man who was known and loved in his native Russia, the capitals of Europe, and throughout the American Southwest which was his home for forty years. Leon Gaspard was born in Russia in 1882, and died in Taos, New Mexico early in 1964. During his life he spanned incredible times and spaces--from the turn-of-the-century Paris of the Bohemians to the ageless Tibet of the Grand Lama--from the ancient Forbidden City of Peking to the almost-today Taos of Mabel Dodge Luhan and D. H. Lawrence. Surely only a man as vital and as sentient as Gaspard could have encompassed them all.
