(BLAKE, TOM). Lynch, Gary & Sam George. TOM BLAKE: SURFING 1922-1932 - DELUXE BOXED ESTATE-STAMPED EDITION. Signed by the Publisher. Santa Barbara, CA: T. Adler Books, 1999. First Edition 1/350 Deluxe. 8vo. 1/4 Cloth Over Boards in Box. Photography Monograph. Fine/No Jacket - As Issued. 68pp, 49 duotone illustrations. Designed by Tom Adler. Tom Blake's 1935 "The Hawaiian Surfboard" is generally acknowledged as the first monograph on modern surfing, with Blake the father of surf photography. This loving tribute to Blake by noted designer/art director/publisher/surfing aficionado Tom Adler is very much in the same vein as his press' previous book; "Don James: Surfing San Onofre to Point Dune: 1936-1942". It reproduces forty-nine beautiful vintage images of Blake, Hawaiian Beach scenes, and portraits of the legendary Duke Kahanamoku in an elegantly produced package. Limited to three hundred and fifty copies only (with nearly one hundred of these destroyed by a flood at the publisher's storage area), this deluxe edition comes in a printed, sliding box, NUMBERED AND SIGNED by Tom Adler with the stamp of Tom Blake's estate on the rear colophon, as issued. A most handsome example of this uncommon item.
