This catalogue accompanies an exhibition held in 2006 showcasing highlights from the outstanding Herschel V. Jones collection of prints at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Two essays document the collection's formation by William Mead Ladd in Portland, Oregon and its sale (to Portland's great regret) to Jones in 1916, who donated it to the MIA. The 79 prints are reproduced in full-page plates of excellent quality, with catalogue essays by Michaux, a curator at the MIA. The volume is oversized (9.25x12.25") and distributed by the U. of Minnesota Press.
