Presented here is a rare collector’s item for the Sadequain enthusiast. This portfolio, titled ‘Sadequain- Exquisite Drawings and Verse’, contains 20 sketches by Sadequain, reproductions of hand-written verse with English translations, and a facsimile of a letter by him, spread over 30 loose sheets of thick paper suitable for framing. The translations were done by Khushwant Singh, and the portfolio edited and compiled by Aziz Kurtha. The portfolio was published in 1999 in the UK by Indus and Ganges Publishers, but printed by Vakil & Sons in India. The folder is approximately 10.2 inches wide, 14.5 inches tall, and 0.5 inches thick.
The portfolio is in very good condition. The cardboard folder housing the plates is creased around the edges and the corners, and the slit into which the closing flap is inserted is slightly torn at the corner. The translucent portrait of Sadequain has a crease to the corner, but the the plates themselves are in near-perfect condition, with only occasional tiny bends here and there to the corners.
