Eleanor vere boyle [e.v.b.] (1825-1916)
“But he was only sunk in a dream of delight.”

Original illustration for The Story without an End, from the German of Carobe by Sarah Austin. (London: Sampson Low, Marston, Low, and Searle, 1868). Watercolor on paper. 145x116 mm; 5¾x4½ inches, mounted to 7x6-inch stiff card. Tipped to window matte; framed.

Provenance: The artist's family; Maas Gallery, 1980s; present owner.

This is the beautiful original watercolor illustration given to Leighton Brothers engravers to translate into the color lithographs used in the first edition of the book.
As a descendant of the Duke of Ancaster, Eleanor Vere Boyle was a member of the British peerage and an amateur painter and children's book illustrator. As her family looked askance at any one of her class or sex participating in the arts, she signed her work "EVB" and so worked within relative obscurity. Her husband was the son of the Earl of Cork. She specialized in elaborate Pre-Raphaelitesque watercolors for fairy tales. One of her most accomplished works was Friedrich Wilhelm Carové's The Story Without an End (1868), translated from the German by Sarah Austin.

Robert childress (1915-1983)
Archive of preparatory material for “Fun with Our Family.”

The second book in the “New Basic Readers Program of the Sixties” series created by by Scott, Foresman and Company, 1962.
The archive comprises three main elements: Pencil roughs of the full book consisting of a cover illustration and 60 pages (in folded quadrants) of handwritten text and sketches (all in the artist’s hand) * Fifteen envelopes, one for each story in the book, containing preparatory modeling photos of the artist’s family, typed revision notes from the publisher, sketches and re-worked pages * Two mimeographed proof sketchbooks contaning Childress’ copious edits, a few text revisions, and some reworked illustrations laid into the pages. See condition report for breakdown of contents.
Provenance: The artist, by descent to daughter Nancy, who was the model for the character Sally.
Perhaps the most famous series of readers for young children, the “Dick and Jane readers,” was the brainchild of Scott, Foresman editors/writers William S. Gray and Zerna Sharp. Developed in the 1930s, their popular primers, which used the “look-see” (i.e. sight-reading) method, peaked in the 1950s and taught generations of American school children the fundamentals of reading, writing, and verbal skills. When the company sought to update the series in the late 1950s and early `60s, they worked with professionals in the fields of child psychology and early childhood education to create the texts that used modern pedagogical methods and artwork that would reflect contemporary props and story plots to engage beginning readers. With an emphasis on visual stimulation and the idea that children learn to read pictures before text, SFC hired Childress to create the accompanying illustrations that children could relate to and ideally spark their joy for reading. His wholesome, joyful imagery for such advertising campaigns as Wonder Bread, Campbell’s Soup, and Coca-Cola, among other traditional brands, made him the ideal illustrator for the series .
Childress was so enthused by the project and produced several stories between 1958 and 1968. He employed his entire family in the venture, having them pose for the illustrations which SFC encouraged, printing all the photos he needed for his work. These photographs, which display his commitment to honest and realistic poses and expressions, were preserved by Childress and his family and are included in this archive, organized by the titles of the stories for which they were created. The accompanying full pencil roughs lay out the chapters and contain meticulous handwritten text beneath his perfectly composed sketches.
Childress’ contributions were so integral that the publishers would entrust him with textual edits that he suggested, some examples of which are marked in the proof sketchbooks.
This archive provides a wonderful and detailed look into the creative process of the illustrator who helped shape mid-century American education.

”. . . and soon the bicycles they sought / From every room and bench were brought”

Illustration for the story "The Brownies on Bicycles" as published in The Brownies: Their Book (New York: The Century, 1887), page 22. Pen and ink on stiff paper mounted to card. 220x197 mm; 8½x7¾ inches, image, on 11½x9½-inch mount. Signed "Palmer Cox" in lower right, captioned "In the work shop" with notes to printer on mounting card recto, verso with The Century Co. stamp.

A charming illustration from the first volume of Cox's popular "Brownies" series. The full caption printed in the book reads: "Not long could door or windows stand / Fast locked before the Brownie band; and soon the bicycles they sought / From every room and bench were brought."

Palmer Cox's Brownies were the Smurfs of their day. Not only were they the source for a long line of best-selling children's books but their Canadian-born creator widely licensed them for all kinds of merchandise. Even Kodak's Brownie Camera was named for them. The stories and pictures were serialized in St. Nicholas and Ladies' Home Journal and adapted as Sunday comic strip. At least two plays were based on the popular characters. Arguably Cox drew his best pictures for this work, the original The Brownies, Their Book. Cox had not yet developed the vast cast of ethnic Brownies, but the Irishman and The Dude can be spotted among the predominately Scottish band of fairies in these early drawings.

Helen and alf evers (1905-2004)
“Little Goosie-Gosling.”

Nearly complete group of color proofs for the book written and illustrated by the Helen and Alf Evers, published by F. J. Ward, 1937. Ink, crayon, and yellow gouache color separation overlays on tracing paper. 280x358 mm; 11x14 inches, sheets. The archive, consisting of hand-drawn text and images, includes: cover, copyright, and dedication pages, Mother goose quote page, 25 (of 25) full text pages with borders (that did not contain illustrations), 19 (of 25) boards with color separations containing text and illustrations, list of authors' works, and one unused image. A copy of the published book, inscribed and signed by the Evers' accompanies the artwork.

Alf Evers (1905-2004) met Helen Baker at the Art Students League in New York City, and they collaborated on several popular picture books. The two divorced in 1950 and he became an esteemed local historian of the Catskills, of Woodstock in particular. Based on an old nursery rhyme, Little Goosie-Gosling (1934) with its strong outline drawing and hand-lettered text owes much to Wanda Gág's classic Millions of Cats (1928).
