    This is a 1981 limited edition out of print Edgar Tolson: Kentucky Gothic Catalog from a show organized by Priscilla Colt and exhibited at The University of Kentucky Art Museum and Cranbrook Academy of Art/Museum.  Edgar Tolson (1904-1984) was a woodcarver from Kentucky who became a well-known folk art.  He is best known for his "Fall of Man" cycle, a series of carvings portraying the story of Adam and Eve.  This catalog has 40 pages of photographs, which include works from this cycle; other Biblical themes, such as Cain and Abel, Daniel in the Lions Den, Noah's Ark, and the Crucifixion; and human and animal sculptures, including snake handler, a preacher and a hippie.  This 9" high by 8.5" wide catalog is softbound with 64 pages, including an essay on the art of Edgar Tolson.  It was limited to 1500 copies.  This Edgar Tolson: Kentucky Gothic Catalog is in good condition with some shelf wear to the covers and a subtle indentation that runs about 6" through the pages from the right hand corner.
