[Queens, NY]: Salamander Editions [Joseph Cornell], (1954). First Edition. Small 8vo. Original printed stapled wraps. MARIA (1954) was privately printed by Cornell in an edition of about 100 copies and given away to his friends as presents. The work was inspired by nineteenth-century opera singer Maria Malibran-Garcia and was produced with the same precision and care Cornell brought to his other work. It is in many ways a Cornell work in book form with the appropriation of text, the use of a decorative headpiece from yet another book, and dealing with one of Cornell's signature obsessions.
