256 pp, large 8vo (9 7/8" H). Profusely illustrated in b&w and colour. "This volume, published to mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of Ernest Shepard, offers the best and most characteristic of his whole range of work; it also provides a balanced appreciation of the man as artist and companion. Ernest H Shepard, 'Kipper' to his family and friends, is perhaps best known - and loved - for the children's illustrations he did for the work of A.A. Milne and for his incomparable drawings for Kenneth Grahame's 'The Wind in the Willows'. His output, however, was considerable and altogether he illustrated somewhere near to a hundred books. Over a period of fifty years he also had weekly drawings in Punch magazine and these too are represented here." Contents: Preface; 1879-1897: A Victorian boyhood; 1897-1914: The making of an artist (1. Willingly to work and marriage; 2. The development of the line - by Penelope Fitzgerald); 1914-1920: Guns, mud and separation; 1920-1940: Success, tragedy and professionalism; Ernest and the Punch Table by H.F. Ellis; 1940-1955: War again - and regeneration; 1955-1976: The unfading old soldier; A master of line by Bevis Hiller; Bibliography and acknowledgements; Index. Two tiny stains on free rear endpaper, small scuff on top of text block, tiny soiling mark on bottom of text block, bookplate on free front endpaper. Dust jacket has light edge wrinkling at top edge - mainly at top of spine.
