About this Item

Copy # 6, signed on title page by Wall. Etched title page, contents page and 21 plates mostly in brown ink each with tissue guards by Bernhardt Wall. Small 4to. AUTHOR'S PRESENTATION COPY. Inscribed on ffep "To my friend/ [erased name!]/ June 1920/ Bernhardt Wall." Six of the plates are signed by Wall.Weber describes it as "[a]n interesting pictorial representation of 'the Monmartre of America,' an area in Manhattan long frequented by authors, artists, and students." Indeed, here we have a group of portraits of artists, the poor, cafe interiors, local landmarks and even a self portrait. While entirely typical of Wall's style, it's an interesting departure in content as his works are more generally associated with the Civil War, the West and prominent figures such as Abraham Lincoln, Mark Twain and Thomas Edison. Interestingly, this follows on directly from his work on the First World War including images of the troops amassing in New York in 1918. Five of the plates are dated 1918, suggesting the images were produced at the same time.A pioneer of American etching, Wall was born in Buffalo, and studied at the New York Student's League, before apprenticing under William Auerbach-Levy. In addition to books such as these, he was a prolific designer of postcards and became known as the Postcard King.Although there is no statement of limitation, the New York Historical Society's copy has a note from 1918 stating the edition was 100 copies. They received their copy in December 1920. This one collates exactly to theirs. Weber p. 31 Original cloth backed paper boards, with title in brown on upper cover, extremities rubbed, title in ms. ink to spine Etched title page, contents page and 21 plates mostly in brown ink each with tissue guards by Bernhardt Wall.
