Item Description: New York: The Derrydale Press, 1931, 1931. 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 From an edition of 250 signed sets. Ordeman notes that "it is rare that one finds a complete set today". 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. . 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. Ordeman, The Aquatints, Drypoints and Etchings of The Derrydale Press, p. 24-5, et seq. Bookseller Inventory # 261099

Item Description: New York: The Derrydale Press, 1931, 1931. A very nice copy of a volume that is less a book than a work of art. Roland Clark's matchless drypoints, all first impressions, printed from the plates on fine watermarked deckle edge paper and signed by him, are luminous--one doesn't have to be a devotee of wildfowling to appreciate their magic artistry. If one is a devotee, this book is profoundly satisfying. Frazier acknowledges this: "One of the most beautiful of the Derrydale Press books in every phase. In my opinion this one will continue to go up in value forever." Deluxe Edition, No. 16 of 35 copies, signed by Eugene Connett on the limitation page. 8vo.
