Overall size: 13.75" x 11.75"; Plate impression size: 9.5" x 7.5". Original etching after the painting by Edouard Zamacoia. Printed upon fine hand made, laid paper and with full margins. Hand-signed in pencil by the etcher in the margin. About the artist/etcher: William St. John Harper was born in 1851 in Rhinebeck New York and was best known as an illustrator and teacher. William Harper received his first art lesson from John B. Whittaker at the Brooklyn Academy of Design after attending the College Grammar School in Brooklyn. In 1879 he became manager of the New York Daily Graphic's art department and his illustrations appeared in periodicals like Harper's Weekly and Scribner's. In the later part of his career he became well known for his pictures of women and children and didn't usually paint them in oil. Not painting much William still won the Thomas D. Clark prize for "Autumn" in 1892 which helped him in his election as an Associate in the National Gallery. He taught in the Art Students League serving as their director of management and even president at times. Bookseller Inventory # 060594

Terms of Sale:

We guarantee the condition of every book as it's described on the Abebooks web sites. If you're dissatisfied with your purchase (Incorrect Book/Not as Described/Damaged) or if the order hasn't arrived, you're eligible for a refund within 30 days of the estimated delivery date. If you've changed your mind about a book that you've ordered, please use the "Ask bookseller a question" link to contact us.


Shipping Terms:

We generally ship by the next business day. We want your order to reach you in the same condition it leaves our shelves -- so much so that we've created our own brand of shipping mailer. CorgiPack┐ mailers are constructed with a B-flute corrugated fiberboard pad providing solid edge and corner protection in transit, protection sadly lacking in cheap bubble mailers. And they're 100% recyclable -- just put them out with the household paper! International orders are shipped via AIR and should arrive in 7 to 10 days after shipping. Oversize items (e.g. sets containing 2 or more volumes, 4to, folios) and high cost items are sometimes subject to additional shipping charges; we will contact you for your approval if such is the case. Orders shipped outside of the United States may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. International shipments may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches the recipient's country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; we have no control over these charges and can't predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for more information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates.
