Derby Day Shown in Six Reliefs
London Raphael Tuck & Son. Circa 1905. Set of six chromolithograph relief scraps housed in the original paper folder measuring 8.5 x 31.5 cm; some minor repairs. The front of the folder supplies the title, artist, and publisher, with a vignette of four people in a donkey cart in a hurry. On the back are the titles of the scraps: 1. 'The Start'; 2 'Clapham Common'; 3. 'Halt for Refreshments'; 4. 'On the Course'; 5. 'The Race'; 6 'The Return'. The titles appear on banderoles above each scrap, identifications of the subjects in each scrap appear in the bottom margins. George Cruikshank had been dead a quarter of a century so the scraps may rely broadly on his work but the images have a distinct Edwardian flavour to them. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Pickering & Chatto [London, United Kingdom]
