MAUD HUMPHREY'S BOOK OF FAIRY TALES

New York, Frederick A. Stokes, 1892.

First edition. Folio. 12 full page chromolithographed plates (including the title page) plus intext

color illustrations, all printed on one side only on heavy paper. The binding is a red cloth spine,

printed paper boards (both upper and lower) showing Little Red Riding Hood. The boards are

rough and worn at the edges and corners, with a stain on the lower corner of the upper board,

rear inner hinge cracked but strong; the text block is a very good to near fine, with only the

occasional light soil to a few of the plates. A surprisingly rare book by the iconic Maud

Humphrey, who trained, inter alia, under James McNeil Whistler.

$1000

MAUD HUMPHREY'S MOTHER GOOSE

New York, Frederick A. Stokes, 1891.

First edition. Folio. 24 chromolithographed sheets (including the title page) printed on one side

only in full color on heavy paper. The binding is a green cloth spine, printed paper boards

showing Little Miss Muffet on both the upper and lower boards. The first three pages have been

reset; the boards are rubbed and corners worn; an old (1891) gift inscription on the front

pastedown has been partially obliterated; lacks rear free endpaper; inner hinge neatly mended; the

last page (

Bobby Shaftoe

) has a closed marginal tear with an old tape repair affecting the second

verse of the rhyme (no loss);

Little Boy Blue

may once have been framed: there are tape marks on

the reverse not affecting the image side; overall a better than good copy of a scarce book by one of

America's first popular women artists.

$450

LITTLE FOLK OF '76

New York, Frederick A. Stokes, (1900).

First edition. Folio. 6 full page color plates (including the title page)

by Maud Humphrey, plus intext illustrations and text by Mabel

Humphrey, all printed on one side only on heavy paper. The binding

is a red cloth spine, printed paper boards both upper and lower

showing

Paul Revere

on his hobby horse.

This is a fine, bright copy with only traces of wear and soil, still

protected

in its rare dustwrapper.

The dustwrapper has had extensive

old repairs from within over time, including some tape repairs, and it

lacks bits along the edges and folds, but it is still presentable.

Rare in this condition
