      Octavio Paz, Three Poems.

      Portfolio with complete text and 27 lithographs on Arches, 1987. 545x451 mm; 21 3/8x 17 1/8 (sheets), bound as issued. Edition of 750. Signed by Paz and Motherwell and numbered "375" in pencil, on the colophon. Printed by Trestle Editions, New York. Published by The Limited Editions Club, New York. Original linen portfolio cover and box. Very good impressions.

      Motherwell and Paz were close friends and often dedicated works to each other. This collaboration arose from a visit by Motherwell to Mexico in 1967, a country in which he'd already spent time in 1941. The portfolio was first published in 1981-82. The current edition comprises text in Spanish and English printed in two colors. Belknap 354-380.
