About this Item: New Orleans: The Magnolia Press of the American Academy of History, April 1938., 1938. First edition (as stated). Unpaged; 16 pages followed by 54 plates on single-sided leaves. Hardcover; H 28.5cm x L 22cm. Gray dust jacket adorned with only the title and author's name in black lettering upon the front panel; light rubbing to panels, faint toning to the spine paper with three negligible nicks at head, slight wear at front flap head and rear flap heel, light residue from removed price sticker remains at bottom edge of front panel near spine, long but mild slender curvilinear indentation on rear panel; dj now presented in a mylar Brodart protector. Quarter-bound with deep blue cloth spine and gray paper covered boards; front board decorated with only black lettering emulating the dj, lightest of wear at corners and spine ends. Interior pages remain remarkably bright and clean and are fortunately without the usual foxing which mars most copies encountered. A handsome fine copy in a very good+ dust jacket of a quite uncommon book. With frontispiece self-portrait by William Woodward. Features a total of 54 b/w plates (excluding frontis) from original etchings mostly of Vieux Carre streetscapes all printed on rectos with the title and brief explanatory comments provided on the opposing verso. Includes a Foreword by prominent architect and educator Nathaniel Cortlandt Curtis, Sr. (1881-1953) who headed the Tulane School of Architecture from 1912 to 1917 and served as a lecturer from 1921 to 1937. Renowned artist and professor William Woodward (1859-1939) initiated architectural instruction at Tulane in 1894 and, with his brother, Ellsworth Woodward, developed the art programs of Tulane and Newcomb College with the latter's lauded pottery earning lasting fame and, coincidentally, involving such famous potters as Joseph Fortune Meyer and the enigmatic George Ohr, both of whom are illustrated in the book's last plate showing them at work in a reminisced view of the New Orleans Art Pottery Studio. FRENCH QUARTER ETCHINGS remains the best collection of Vieux Carre illustrations for Woodward's attention to architectural detail and his ability to capture a quick vignette of daily life in various passersby arguably imbue his scenes with greater charm than those of the esteemed William Spratling (a Tulane faculty member too in the early to mid 1920s) whose delightful drawings in his 1923 collection PICTURESQUE NEW ORLEANS relied upon more freehand whimsy to convey a moment in time.
