Description: Limited Edition lithograph entitled "THE PYRAMIDS WITH MOON," No. 379 of 1500, 11 x 8.5 inches, signed in the plate "CALDER, '75," created by the artist in 1975 for the World Federation of United Nations Association (a fundraising branch of the UN) in celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the United Nations. In 1976, The United Nations sold a subscription of 1,500 hand-signed lithographs of the above for $88.00 each. Today they sell at auction for $1500 to $2500 per unit. Sadly, it was also Calder's last commissioned project before his untimely death in the same year. Fine condition.

I just finished reading about the store and your family in Nick Basbanes newest book, Patience & Fortitude. I had previously read an article in Book magazine. I wished that I lived near so I could visit your store, it looks and sounds like a place I dream of getting lost in. Basbanes book mentioned that your father began a memoir but was, sadly, unable to finish the work. Would it be in anyway possible to read what must be a great historical adventure in bookselling? I wish you all continued success and a very long existence. - Steven Griese
