Book Description W Thacker & Co., London, 1904. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. No Jacket. First Edition. 249 pages (complete). Folio size. Heavy. Despite wear and foxing, the geniality and acute observation of this book of drawings from the great Phil May, shine through as clearly as the mischief in a shoe-blacker boy's face. The boards are much worn, marked, scuffed, rubbed, stained all about. They are resolute, steady and sound. The contents have flushes of foxing throughout. The pages, though, are placid, pleasing, clear, neat, contained, certain, generous to a fault and utterly engaging, apposite and unforgettably convivial. fk. Bookseller Inventory # bvlj

He began his career as a scene painter, actor and pantomime costume designer, and contributed drawings to the Yorkshire Gossip, before he was 'discovered' by the actor Lionel Brough and worked for Society and St Stephen's Review. In Australia from 1885 to 1888 he contributed to the Sydney Bulletin. He then moved to Paris to study art. By 1890 he had returned to London and was anxious to join James Whistler's Chelsea Arts Club. He was elected in 1891. From 1892 to 1903 May produced Phil May's Winter Annual, which established his reputation as a caricaturist of Bohemian life and urban culture. He also worked for the Daily Graphic, Graphic, Illustrated London News, Sketch, Punch, English Illustrated Magazine and Pick-Me-Up. In 1895 he published Phil May's Sketch Book: Fifty Cartoons and in 1896 Guttersnipes: Fifty Original Sketches. In 1896 May was elected to the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours and was appointed Chair of Punch. Bookseller Inventory # 38382
