AMERICAN BEAUTIES

Harrison Fisher

New York: Grosset & Dunlap, 1909. Hardcover. Good +. Harrison Fisher and E. Stetson Crawford. Contains beautiful, full color illustrations by Harrison Fisher of women dressed in their finery of the day. Fisher was born in Brooklyn, New York City and began to draw at an early age. Fisher studied at the San Francisco Art Association. In 1898 he moved back to New York and began his career as a newspaper and magazine illustrator. He became known particularly for his drawings of women, which won him acclaim as the successor of Charles Dana Gibson. Together with fellow artists Howard Chandler Christy and Neysa McMein he constituted the Motion Picture Classic magazine's, "Fame and Fortune" contest jury of 1921/1922, who discovered the It-girl, Clara Bow. Fisher's work appeared regularly on the cover of Cosmopolitan magazine from the early 1900s until his death. The decorations on the pages in the book were prepared by E. Stetson Crawford. Crawford's family tree includes many important Americans, among them grandfather John B. Stetson, hat manufacturer and philanthropist, Christopher Sower, printer of the first foreign language bibles in this country and Abraham Clark signer of the Declaration of Independence. Crawford studied commercial art at the Philadelphia School of Industrial Art amd the Pennsylvania Academy. He also studied at many of the fine Parisian schools and ateliers including the Académie Julian, Delacluse, Beaux Arts and Colarossi. After his service in World War I, Crawford's output of etchings became more prolific; he enjoyed depicting European towns, people and landscapes. In his hasty return to the United States at the start of World War II, Crawford was forced to leave much of his work behind in Europe, which was later destroyed during a bombing raid. His remaining works can now be found in some of the major American collections of prints, such as the New York Public Library and the Library of Congress. Green coverboards with pastedown illustration on front. Some edgwear to boards. Pastedown illustration is scuffed. Some watermarking on rear board. One page has come loose. Some smudging at corners of of pages. Previous owner's name and date on front free endpaper. Size: 4to (11" to 13"). Unpaginated.
