ISBN: 9780847840557

New York: Skira Rizzoli Publications, 2013. First Edition. Quarto (31x25x3.5cm); 339pp, including bibliography and index. Profusely illustrated throughout with 202 color images of the Newcomb output and other B&W images as part of the historical survey.

Photographic dustjacket. Boards in silvery gray, with bisque spine lettering and blind-stamped title on front panel. Very slight roll to spine, and minimal bumps to panel corners. Dustjacket shows some edgewear bumping; jacket and volume otherwise unmarred and unmarked.

The volume is much more expansive than an exhibit catalog, but was issued to coincide with Tulane University's exhibit "Women, Art, and Social Change: The Newcomb Pottery Enterprise," held from October 2013 to March 2014, and traveling afterward under the auspices of the Smithsonian Institution.
