Artic Ground Finch from Birds of America. John James Audubon.

Artic Ground Finch from Birds of America

Philadelphia: 1870. This well-known lithograph is from the work Birds of America by John James Audubon, which has been printed in many editions. This print is from the 7th printing conducted by Audubon and Roe Lockwood in 1870-1871. Lockwood’s involvement has led this edition to commonly be known as the Lockwood edition. Other than the colored backgrounds, which were added to the post-first editions, the main images on these prints are, for the most part, identical to those of the First edition and feature hand coloring. J.T. Bowen was lithographer for the work, which was published in Philadelphia. These are some of the best examples of hand-colored work in America and are highly collectible. They are on fine heavy stock paper measuring 6 7/8 x 10 ½ inches. Double matted in wood frame. #43659. Fine.

Original caricature of Sydney Schiff. Max Beerbohm.

Original caricature of Sydney Schiff

[ca. 1922]. "The darkness and the flashing eye," [ca. 1922]. Pencil and watercolor on paper. Caricature of Sydney Schiff, 1868-1944, the novelist who published under the name “Stephen Hudson,” translator of Proust’s A la recherché des temps perdu, patron of writers and artists including T. S. Eliot and Wyndham Lewis, and best remembered perhaps for hosting the famous dinner in Paris on May 18, 1922 to mark the premiere of Stravinsky's ballet, Le renard, attended by Joyce, Picasso, Stravinsky and Proust. Schiff and his wife, Violet - the sister of Wilde's Sphinx, Ada Leverson - were close friends of Max and Florence Beerbohm, providing the Beerbohms a refuge in England at their country house in Abinger during W.W.II. Inscribed with title and “Dearest Sydney Very many thanks. I shall treasure the document – the intensely interesting prophecy, based on so much knowledge of things and said with such keen vision. May you be right! Reading you, I feel that you might be. And then dismal doubts creep in. ‘The mills of God,’ you say. They do certainly grind slowly. But I don’t think the History of the World shows them to be efficient in the long run. If they were, our world wouldn’t be what it is! Your ever affectionate Max.” Unrecorded in Hart-Davis’s catalogue of Beerbohm’s caricatures. 25.4 x 20.4 cm. Nicely framed. In fine condition. ORIG/011216.
