Item Description: Original Artwork. c., 1910. Original pen and ink drawing on paper. Mounted. Image size 36cms x 30 cms. Signed twice in ink and with six lines of text in the artists hand (in pencil). Probably drawn for a magazine or annual but almost certainly published as there are printerís notes underneath the mount. The drawing is in two halves, the first is a picture of Mr and Mrs Cackle, two ducks (in hats) and a very large egg. The second picture shows the egg hatched and lots of little ducklings running out. The text over the first image reads "Oh dear, what a big egg! You did not lay that Mrs Cackle surely. Yes I did Mr Cackle but itís grown up of its own accord in the night. What a big duckling we shall have". Under the second image reads "Oh dear, there is a whole brood of ducklings coming out of one egg. Mrs Cackle you must have laid an Easter egg by mistake". Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request. Lucius Books welcomes direct contact with our customers. Bookseller Inventory # 3782

Item Description: 0, 0. No Binding. Book Condition: Very Good. LOUIS WAIN (illustrator). 1st Edition. LOUIS WAIN, (ENGLISH 1860-1939) FRAMED ORIGINAL CHARMING PEN AND INK DRAWING OF A CAT, LAVISHLY SIGNED IN FULL ¿LOUIS WAIN¿ A STUNNING DRAWING OF A CAT¿S FACE WITH AN EXPRESSION OF SURPRISE, FRAMED TO A COMPLETED SIZE OF: 15¿ X 14¿ THE ART IS IN FINE CONDITION AND WAS CUSTOM MATTED, FRAMED AND GLAZED. A VERY STUNNING PIECE! A rare beautiful original Louis Wain drawing in pen and ink, of a cat with a lovely look of surprise on his face. Signed to the front, lower left by Louis Wain. The page is toned with light creasing and a few tiny stain dots. The art was custom double matted, framed and glazed and is presented in a natural light maple wood frame, with a deeply beveled mat, framed using all archival materials and UV glass. The art is signed in full signature by Louis Wain as ¿Louis Wain¿ lower left. Wain has a very distinctive artistic style capturing incredible emotions in his highly detailed cat drawing. Provenance: The sketch was acquired by a premier London auction house who vetted the art. A copy of the lot description showing both the purchase, along with the art description will accompany the framed piece as provenance. Louis Wain original artwork is exceedingly scarce. A very stunning piece and showcases very well. Perfect for the Louis Wain and cat art collector. Louis Wain was one of the most popular commercial illustrators in the history of England. Born in 1860, his anthropomorphic portrayals of cats captured the imagination of the Edwardian era and his work helped to elevate the profile and popularity of our feline friends to unprecedented heights. Before Wain, cats in England were often thought of with contempt but his work humanised them and helped to show them as something to be liked, admired and even loved. In 1886, Wain¿s first drawing of anthropomorphised cats was published in the Christmas issue of the Illustrated London News, titled ¿A Kittens¿ Christmas Party¿. The illustration depicted 150 cats. In subsequent years, Wain¿s cats began to walk upright, smile broadly and use other exaggerated facial expressions, and would wear sophisticated, contemporary clothing. Wain¿s illustrations showed cats playing musical instruments, serving tea, playing cards, fishing, smoking, and enjoying a night at the opera. Such anthropomorphic portrayals of animals were very popular in Victorian England and were often found in prints, on greeting cards and in satirical illustrations such as those of John Tenniel. His illustrations were so popular that throughout the beginning of the twentieth-century most homes had at least one of his famous cat annuals and many nurseries had Wain posters hanging on their walls. ¿He made the cat his own¿ H.G. Wells once remarked. ¿He invented a cat style, a cat society, a whole cat world.¿ His artistic style changed throughout his life, although he was always known for drawings of cats. In his later years, his drawings took on a psychedelic style (not unlike some of Van Goghs art), with many of his painting containing brilliant background colors with swirling patterns. Eventually even his cats began to take on the same psychedelic appearances beginning to seemingly blend into the background. FRAMED SIZE: 15¿ X 14¿ . ADDITIONAL IMAGES AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.

Item Description: London: Privately Printed for Mr. & Mrs. F.T. Davies, 1891, 1891. "A Night in Town" - Probably Louis Wain's Very First Published 'Cat Caricature'[WAIN, Louis, artist]. [DOBSON, Austin, contributor]. A Book of Drawings. By A. Bryan, L. Davis, A.T. Elwes, Harry Furniss, J. Jellicoe, Louise Jopling, J.B. Partridge, Jo. Pennell, R.H. Moor, H. Railton, Hugh Thomson, L. Wain, C. Wilkinson & W. Wilson: with a prefatory poem by Austin Dobson. London: Privately Printed for Mr. & Mrs. F.T. Davies, [1891]. One of a hundred large paper copies on hand-made paper, signed by F.T.W. Davies, the plates individually signed by the illustrators. 43, [1 imprint] pp. Folio (12 7/8 x 10 3/8 inches; 326 x 263 mm.). Original thin white vellum over parchment wrappers. Front cover decoratively stamped and lettered in gilt. A near fine copy.The two Louis Wain drawings, each of which is signed by Wain in pencil are: "A Night in Town" and [A Single Cat].From studying the 209 entries in Rodney Dale's A List of Books Illustrated by Louis Wain, it would appear that A Book of Drawings (Dale 20, 1891) was only preceded by Madame Tabby's Establishment (Dale 141, 1886) and Dreams by French Firesides (Dale 56, 1890). We believe that the drawing "A Night in Town" is most probably the very first published Louis Wain 'multi-cat caricature'.Extremely rare - OCLC lists just two copies in libraries worldwide: Yale University Library, CT., and R. G. Menzies Library, ANU, Canberra."Mr. and Mrs. Davies, who are well known for their unsparing efforts on behalf of the poor of St. Pancras, have issued a book of drawings with the same charitable intentions as have been displayed in their concerts. For this purpose they have secured the services of several well-known artists, who have contributed, each with his own especial style, and the result is a recherché book of pictures not often seen. The title-page is by Herbert Horne, and Mr. Austin Dobson furnishes a prefatory poem; the artists who have sent their charitable mites are W. Wilson, H. Railton, J. Jellicoe, A.T. Elwes, Louise Jopling, Joseph Pennell, H. Furniss, C. Wilkinson, A. Bryan, R.H. Moore, J.B. Partridge, Lucien Davis, Hugh Thomson, Louis Wain, and Selwyn Image, who sends a tail-piece. Anyone wishing to make a Christmas or New Year's Gift will help on the good work Mr. and Mrs. Davies are doing by sending for a book. A special large paper edition, limited to 100 copies, printed on hand-made paper, with India proofs of the drawings, and bound in parchment, will also be issued from Wilsford House, 16 Fitzroy-street, London, W., or may be obtained through Mr. Tregaskis." (The British Bookmaker. Volume V. 1891-92)."Until 1890, Louis Wain had made little or no attempt to portray cats as anything other than fluffy animals which, though they slept between sheets, or wrote letters with quill pens, were otherwise recognisably feline. The 'Louis Wain cat' had not yet been born. But in 1890, he began to explore the possibility of the comic cat; cats drawn in human situations - or humans drawn as cats, which amount to the same thing. He insisted that he did not caricature cats, but drew them as he saw them, though his approach makes it clear that he generally saw them as humans. Naturally, then, he studied humans when drawing cats. ' If I want a mild, irresponsible caricature, a grinning cat, then I have to let loose my nature impressions and let myself go on my own account, and it is astonishing what variety one can get in this way, and how one's moods vary from day to day. I have done as many as one hundred and fifty laughing cats at a time, no two being alike. ' There is another way of sketching cats, and this way I often resort to. I take a sketch-book to a restaurant or other public place, and draw the people in their different positions as cats, getting as near to their human characteristics as possible. This gives me double nature, and these studies I think my best humorous work.' The foundations of this approach were laid in 1890. That Christmas, there appeared in Holly Leaves and.

A colorful, charming and amusing depiction of a "father" cat flying a kite with the help of his three kittens.At the end of the nineteenth century, Louis Wain (1860-1939), the Edwardian cat artist who went mad, became a household name as an illustrator of cats, whom he depicted in all sorts of activities, from skating and playing cricket to driving motor cars, attending dances, and playing musical instruments. "He invented a cat style, a cat society, a whole cat world. English cats that do not look like Louis Wain cats are ashamed of themselves" (H.G. Wells)."From 1883, Wain began to draw cats as they had never been drawn before, cats in humorous guises, in human situations, but always beautifully handled?[a]lthough he was sometimes forced to draw dogs before he became well-known!" (Houfe, The Dictionary of British Book Illustrators and Caricaturists 1800-1914).A wonderful early example of a Louis Wain original watercolor drawing. Bookseller Inventory # 02319
