    Various Artists - National Cartoonists Society Portfolio Masterworks Edition (Richard Pryor, 1982). The National Cartoonists Society Portfolio, originally published in two parts, brought together some of the greatest (then) living talent in the field of graphic literature - included were such "old masters" as Hal Foster, Burne Hogarth, Jack Kirby, Jerry Robinson, and Wally Wood, as well as a contingent of "young turks," including Neal Adams, Barry Windsor-Smith, Jim Steranko, Jeffrey Jones, and Mike Kaluta. The limited edition portfolios are highly prized among collectors, but rarer still is the hardbound and slipcased Masterworks edition. Lovingly crafted and limited to a mere 25 copies (the handcolored Neal Adams plate that leads off this impressive volume is numbered 11/25), this book is bound in brown leather with gold stamping. Each plate is protected by a tissue overlay. The off-white fabric covered slipcase is stamped and beautifully made. There are 28 signed plates in this volume, and 3 unsigned. The book and slipcase are both in pristine condition. This portfolio is soaring in collectibility as more and more full sets are broken up and the individual plates sold individually. This extremely rare edition will certainly be the centerpiece of any quality collection.
