Re: “Elfriede Abbe (1919-2012): A Short Appreciation of an Amazing VT Artist

I have some of my Aunt Elfriede Abbe's books (and prints) which all deserve a better home among collectors of fine art and print.

The most important to me as explained to me during the year I stayed with her in 1959 while attending Cornell is The Revelations of St. John the divine". Only those who truly understand her will understand how this book had to be Elfriede's necessary and direct act of artistic violence against a religion that she witnessed defacing her mother's life by decree during her mother's (Freida Dauer Abbe) memorial service in 1956. She told me the whole story during Christmas while burning many of the wood blocks from The Revelations in her huge fireplace in Ithaca.

Aesop’s Fables, 13”x9”, 71pp, #33 of 500 Printed 1950
Rip Van Winkle, Washington Irving, 36pp, 12-1/2”x 8-1/2”, #166 of 275 Printed 1951
Garden Spice, W.C. Muenscher, 212pp, Boxed 12-1/4”x8-3/4”, #69 of 90 Printed 1954
