"It was lin 1965, that John Stobart first visited the United States with four paintings of sailing ships, carefully wrapped up in brown paper and tied with string, under his arm. His idea was to see New York and find out what reaction there might be to his new paintings among four carefully chosen galleries. The same day he arrived in New York he was offered a one-man show by the Wunderlich family who had founded, and then owned, Kennedy Galleries. The Wunderlichs encouraged Stobart to pursue his notion to recreate the American harbor scene in the days of the great clipper era. This was a subject Stobart had discovered had hardly been attempted by contemporary artists of that time. Over the subsequent fifteen years, the Wunderlichs gave him seven one man shows, all virtual sell-outs. Seeing his large new originals disappear into private collections throughout the United States, Stobart initiated the idea of publishing limited edition prints of his more important works. He did this so that many more people than the originals' owners could appreciate these documents of scenes that no longer existed. Stobart established Maritime Heritage Prints, Inc. in 1976 feeling that the highest quality of production could only be assured if he himself remained in control. Believing in the importance of regular communication with collectors of his prints, he also publishes a semiannual newsletter titled "Palette Scrapings." This news bulletin advises his clientele about forthcoming print editions, new originals in progress, books in the works and gallery openings. In 1986 a large format book on his work titled, "STOBART, The Rediscovery of America's Maritime Heritage" was published by E. P. Dutton, New York, displaying some seventy- five major paintings in what amounts to an exhibition in portfolio form." In a Very Good-Fine cloth covered clam shell case with lightly faded front and spine, and a few light-scuffs on rear back, else, Pristine, no wear. Clean, tight and strong binding with no underlining, highlighting or marginalia. Blue teal leather with gilt lettering to front board and spine, illustrated endpapers, and navy-blue ribbon.
