FATHERS OF AMERICAN SPORT". The ORIGINAL SIX: Boyer, Ralph L.

Item Description: The Derrydale Press, New York, 1931. From an edition of 250 signed sets. Ordeman notes that "it is rare that one finds a complete set today". 1 vols. Image size of the prints is approximately 10 x 8 inches, the plate measuring 13 x 9-1/2 inches, with additional margins. Each plate is archivally matted; the paintings measure 12 x 9-12 inches, and are docketed and captioned in pencil in the lower margins. Boyer's Originals. An extremely handsome and decorative set of American sporting notables. The six portraits, each set in an appropriate background, are of: SAMUEL MORRIS, ESQ., Foxhunter, first president of the Gloucester Foxhunting Club, America's oldest; COL. WILLIAM RANSOM JOHNSON, "Napoleon of the Turf"; COL. GEORGE WASHINGTON, Foxhunter; COMMODORE JOHN COX STEVENS, Yachtsman, owner of the "America" and a founder of the New York Yacht Club; THADDEUS NORRIS, ESQ., Angler, author of The American Angler's Book, who did much to elevate and advance the art of fly fishing; HENRY WILLIAM HERBERT, ESQ., "Frank Forester", the father of American sporting literature. Boyer's watercolors, done in larger size, were reduced to edition dimensions of approximately 10 x 8 inches. The proof prints before letters have been reworked by Boyer, who has signed each one, and show a depth and richness of modelling that the published edition, for all its beauty, does not. This set was one of the finest productions of The Derrydale Press Sporting Print Series. We believe the set of proofs to be unique, and the original paintings are, of course, unquestionably so. Both have survived in prime condition, to delight the collector and historian of the American sporting scene. A UNIQUE TREASURE OF AMERICAN SPORTING ART. Ordeman, The Aquatints, Drypoints and Etchings of The Derrydale Press, p. 24-5, et seq The watercolors are handsomely and uniformly matted in fine French mats; the proofs in a more simple uniform matting; a few of the watercolors show faint foxing, but both sets are clean, bright, and highly attractive. Custom half morocco slipcase and cloth chemise 1 vols. Image size of the prints is approximately 10 x 8 inches, the plate measuring 13 x 9-1/2 inches, with additional margins. Each plate is archivally matted; the paintings measure 12 x 9-12 inches, and are docketed and captioned in pencil in the lower margins From an edition of 250 signed sets.
