Crane, in part: "As there are now only a very few copies left of the original edition of my work, 'The Life of Our Lord Jesus Christ,' I prefer not to make public announcement of this fact…Since I so earnestly wish my pictures—my life of Jesus—to pass into good hands, I will, on receipt of enclosed card, personally see to it that full information is sent for your inspection." Professionally inlaid into a larger off-white sheet. In fine condition, with trivial soiling, creasing, and trimmed edges.
