Original Illustrations for a Book?
- 21 original pen and ink drawings on 12 bi-foliums of artist's paper stock. Nine of the bi-foliums consist of one larger drawing and one vignette; three of the bi-foliums contain a single drawing. Some modest soiling, dampstaining mostly in the margins of a couple drawings, encroaching on only one vignette, very good. Each large drawing is signed "C.R. Macauley"; each vignette is initialed "C.R.M."The Canton, Ohio-born artist won the Pulitzer Prize in 1930 for editorial cartooning in the Brooklyn *Daily Eagle*, and is perhaps best known for popularizing the caricatured image of Teddy Roosevelt brandishing his "big stick." He concentrated on book illustration between 1901-1905. Titles he wrote and illustrated include *Fantasma Land*, *The Red Tavern*, *Whom the Gods Would Destroy*, *Keeping the Faith*, *The Man Across the Street*, and *The Optimistic Spectacles*. Among the many books he illustrated were editions of *Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde* by Robert Louis Stevenson, *Romance: A Novel* by Joseph Conrad and Ford M. Hueffer, *Emblemland* by John Kendrick Bangs, and *The Return of Sherlock Holmes* by Arthur Conan Doyle.A group of nonsense drawings, some of fantastic subjects. It is unclear from which book these illustrations came from, although they are almost certainly from the period when he was concentrating on book illustration (1901-1905), purchased by us with other book art from the estate of a publisher. A few of the drawings are similar, and may be studies for *Emblemland* (images of John Bull and another of a talking oyster), but we have been unable at this date to locate some of his other works that might contain the drawings. Provenance on request.
