Side-Lights of Nature in Quill and Crayon

£45.00

Product description

Side-lights of Nature in Quill and Crayon
Edward Tickner Edwardes
Twenty-three monochrome illustrations by George C Haité, FLS, RBA; frontispiece with tissue guard.
Signed by the author and illustrator on the fly title with dedication “To Christine from her Godfather Geo C Haité”.
Kegan Paul, Trench Trubner & Co Ltd, London, 1898.
Hardback; 140 x 195 mm; light green boards with gold titles on spine; viii & 213 pages. No dust jacket.
The book is in fair to good condition and is complete. The binding is sound. There is minimal bumping to the covers and spine. There is a degree of grubbiness which particularly affects the spine. There is a small dent in the middle of the back cover. The endpapers are particularly tanned, as are the fore edge and bottom edge of the leaves visible when the book is closed. The top edge is gilt. The edges of the pages are untrimmed. There is a degree of foxing throughout. There is a pencil mark on the front paste-down endpaper, and the recto of the front free endpaper has the address “Craigmore” 23 Clifton Wood Road Bristol 8 impressed with the signature G Tudgay in blue ink. There is a small chip at the bottom of this page, and dog ears at pages 171/172 to 181/182.
The author Edward Tickner Edwardes (1865 – 1944) records in this book “happy solitary rambles – in storm or sunshine, year in and year out – among the green woods and meadowlands of Kent and Sussex”. George Charles Haité (1855 – 1924) was an English designer, painter, illustrator, and writer. His most famous work is the iconic cover design of the Strand Magazine, launched in 1891, which helped popularise the Sherlock Holmes stories of Arthur Conan Doyle. Haité was also a founder member and the first president of the London Sketch Club.
This book is an opportunity to buy an edition signed not only by the author but also by a talented illustrator. The book can simply be enjoyed as a record of the English countryside over 100 years ago.
