Item Description: Glenhurst Mansions, Clapham. 12 March 1928., 1928. One page, quarto, in ink. Remains of prior mounting on verso, with consequent closed break and slight discoloration in upper margin, minor soiling, but good to very good. A tongue-in-cheek letter from the English illustrator to rare bookseller Charles J. Sawyer, one of his most important patrons. "Kyd" specialized in illustrations of Dickens' characters, but also was a designer of cigarette and postcards as well as fore- edge paintings. He writes, in part: "My deepest sympathy is yours. Life must have become a terrible thing to you. Every ambition satisfied, every want gratified, what is there further to live for . Stay! There is one last insult a paternal government may hurl at your devoted head to send you mournfully to the grave - Knighthood! . They bestow it upon Pickles - upon Beer - upon Whisky - upon the Stage. Why not upon Books and their High Priests?.". Bookseller Inventory # WRCLIT 75167

Item Description: Original Kyd watercolor illustration. ND. [ca. 1885], NP, [London]., 1885. First Edition.. Illustration. 1 p. 8? W x 10? H. Single sheet mounted at corner of folder with mat and ruling on face. Scrooge's former partner, long deceased, was Jacob Marley. In "A Christmas Carol", Marley returns to haunt Scrooge with the errors of both their ways. This is an original watercolor by Joseph Clayton Clarke (1857-1937), known as "Kyd". He was prolific, skilled and effective illustrator and watercolorist, specializing in Charles Dickens's characters. The first publication of Kyd's illustrations appeared in Fleet Street Magazine" in 1887. His numerous images, frequently reproduced (including in the series of cigarette cards published for Player's cigarettes in 1912-25) have set much of the public's conception of Dickens's characters. Kyd was also known for his fore-edge painting of characters from Dickens. This image is one of the most uncommon. The watermark is "Whatman / 1885". One tiny spot of foxing, not in the primary image. Some toning at edges, not involving the image. Overall a Very Good example of a rare item in Kyd's oeuvre. Bookseller Inventory # 11455

Item Description: London: N.p., 1920, 1920. Forty-Eight Original Kyd Watercolors"The Law is an Ass"But the Artwork is SublimeKYD, (pseudonym of Joseph Clayton Clarke) artist. [DICKENS, Charles]. Representatives of the Law. (Ranging from the Bench to the Broker's man), extracted from the Works of Dickens, and portrayed by "Kyd" in a series of 48 Character Studies drawn in colours. London: ca. 1920.Calligraphic title page in an orange border and with a judge's head at the top, calligraphic list of plates in a green border, and forty-eight original watercolors by Kyd.All loose sheets, each measuring 10 9/16 x 7 7/8 inches and with the paintings within fine line borders comprising a panel measuring 7 x 4 1/2 inches. Each is a painting of a legal character from one of Dickens many works. The name of the character is in pen at the top left hand corner of the image space and the title of the book in which the character is found is located at the lower right hand corner.Each painting is signed by Kyd and depicts forty-eight judges, lawyers, solicitors, clerks, police, and prison turnkeys found in Dickens's novels, including Mr. Jaggers (Great Expectations); Mr. Perker (Pickwick Papers); Mr. Blathers (Oliver Twist); Uriah Heep (David Copperfield); Mr. Jinks (Pickwick Papers); Mr. Mallard (Pickwick Papers); Serjeant Buzfuz (Pickwick Papers); Mr. Chuckster (Old Curiosity Shop); Mr. Guppy (Bleak House); Mr. Tulkinghorn (Bleak House); and many others, not the least of whom is Sampson Brass ((Old Curiosity Shop), "an attorney of no very good repute?with a cringing manner, whose blandest smiles were so extremely forbidding that to have had his company under the least repulsive circumstances one would have wished him to scowl" - a character we strenuously assert to have no connection whatsoever in fiction or in life to our Brass family.Chemised in burgundy moire silk and housed in a full red morocco pull-off case with gilt spine lettering. A singular collection and fine.Dickens was intimately knowledgeable about the legal world. He began his professional life as a law clerk and had ambition to pursue the law as a career. As a result, "Charles Dickens was preeminently the novelist of the law, and his lawyers have a hold upon the public imagination far surpassing that of any other author" (Fyfe, Charles Dickens and the Law, p.7)."Dickens used a repeated and consistent pattern in presenting lawyers in his works? Generally, the lawyers have been treated simply as parts of other investigations, or as objects of Dickens' contempt. [In] Robert D. Neely's The Lawyers of Dickens and Their Clerks, [Neely] express[es] the opinion?that Dickens had a disdain for lawyers. 'One of the most marked prejudices was his dislike of lawyers, and all that pertained to the machinery of government.' This hatred is explained and justified in various ways. Philip Collins in Dickens and Crime states that the author was following a literary tradition in treating the lawyers vituperatively. In Charles Dickens: His Tragedy and Triumph Edgar Johnson sees Dickens' treatment of lawyers as one more aspect of his hatred of business. And Humphrey House in The Dickens World views the lawyer similarly to Johnson; House states that the lawyer has only a business, professional approach to people and to life. Thus, the lawyers are dismissed?" (Baughman, Charles Dickens and His Lawyers. ALSA Forum Volume 6, Number Number 2 [1982]). "The one great principle of the English law is, to make business for itself. There is no other principle distinctly, certainly, and consistently maintained through all its narrow turnings." (Bleak House)"'If the law supposes that,' said Mr. Bumble, squeezing his hat emphatically in both hands, 'the law is an ass - an idiot. If that's the eye of the law, the law is a bachelor; and the worst I wish the law is, that his eye may be opened by experience'" (Oliver Twist)."What lawsuits grow out of the graves of rich men, every day; sowing perjury, hatred, and lies among near kindred, where there should be.
