Louis Anquetin, Étrépagny born in 1861 and died in Paris in 1932, is an important French painter. He began his career with avant-garde artists such as Vincent van Gogh and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. With Émile Bernard, he is the inventor of Cloisonnisme. From 1884 to 1893, Louis Anquetin continues to explore new opportunities introduced by the release of Impressionism in French painting. From 1893, after a long confrontation with the "old masters", he adopts a bias pictorial that will line the general art movement, and take away from his friends. Dazzled by the baroque art and its creative force, so he thinks his childhood friends were involved in a pathway leading to the death of painting. He believes in a "perfect painting" which is embodied in the re-remember the lessons of Michelangelo and Rubens among others. His work becomes more conventional, he advocated a return to business by offering to reflect on the a priori conditions of any possible form of art in accordance with the rules of perspective and anatomy, as practiced by the masters the sixteenth and seventeenth century.

Of all the New England polo clubs, notes Bent, the Myopia Club at Hamilton, some 25 miles from Boston, is the best known and has the greatest polo history. Founded as a hunt club in 1882, it added polo in 1888, and in 1895, the year of this picture, played its first senior championship, defeating in the final match the Rockaway team at Brooklyn, NY. The Myopia team was composed of R.L. Agassiz, F.B. Fay, R.G. Shaw 2nd, and A.P. Gardner, all of whom appear in the photograph. Agassiz and Shaw, reports Bent, stood for many years "at or near the top of all the players in this country.". Bent, American Polo, p. 59 et seq.

Eliot, George
New York: Thomas Y. Crowell & Co., 1895 New York: Thomas Y. Crowell & Co., no date [circa 1895]. A Crowell gift edition, elaborately bound. 12mo, 356 pp. Previous owner's warm and dainty india ink inscription dated March, 1895 on the ffep, minute touching of the corners, else very little to call out as a flaw in this spectacular copy. One of the better-preserved examples of Crowell gift-binding you'll see; about near fine. One-quarter elaborate floral gilt-stamping over cream vellum-cloth, and for the covers, finely detailed and colored floral pattern on silk-textured paper. All edges gilt. Tiny corners of vellum-look-cloth as well. See scan. Serious curb appeal. As you know, since you're here, George Eliot was in fact a woman: Mary Ann Evans, of rural British upbringing. She was, in her writing, a political activist of the Jane Austen bent, and her novels Middlemarch, Adam Bede, The Mill on the Floss, and Silas Marner. The Legend of Jubal / The Spanish Gypsy is itself a venture into pointedly (if less obviously) political, though beautiful, lyric poetry. In this form, a well-preserved and visually highly pleasing presentation of that. L101

Boston: Small, Maynard, 1895, 1896 [actually 1912]. First Edition. Two short stories; in Bleiler. The paper seal is still bound in around the second story, but has been broken. Very good in dust jacket. This copy has a cancel title page with only the magazine copyright dates; there is another state (possibly an issue?) with a different copyright notice. The first title is probably the most famous riddle story, and the second title is the author’s attempt to provide an answer, widely regarded as an unsuccessful effort.

FROST, Arthur Burdett (1851-1928)
New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1895-1896. Chromolithograph, on later mount. In good condition apart from small repaired tears to upper left corner and lower margin. Image size: 13 x 19 3/4 inches. A stunning hunting print from one of America's most celebrated sporting artists. Arthur Burdett Frost (1851-1928) is remembered as one of America's best- loved sporting artists. His evocative hunting and shooting prints capture the drama of the sport and provide an invaluable visual record of rural America. Frost was an incredibly successful artist, he illustrated more than ninety books and produced thousands of illustrations for Harper's Weekly, Scribner's and Life magazines. Although born in Philadelphia, he spent the majority of his working career in New Jersey where he produced some of his most noted work. Frost's most desirable and rarest prints are the twelve chromolithographs from the portfolio entitled Shooting Pictures, depicting various shooting scenes from upland shooting to waterfowling. The portfolio, with each image printed on a separate sheet and tipped onto a card backing board, was published by Charles Scribner's Sons in 1895. This dramatic image is a wonderful example from this famous series and demonstrates why Frost is considered one of America's most celebrated sporting artists. Cf. Henry M. Reed The A.B. Frost Book (1993) p. 88 (illustration) and p.158
