About This Item

1930. Very good plus.. Three large finished pen and ink drawings by the British illustrator, whose subjects include a witch with very attentive cat companion, a wizard caught lurking by two courtiers, and a tense throne-room scene. The artist, sister of writer W.W. Jacobs, illustrated editions of Malory, Lewis Carroll, Anderson, and others, and her style in these pieces is characteristic of her work on these and other children's classics. 15.75'' x 11.75; 14'' x 9.5''; 7.25'' x 9.5''. Three finished pen and ink drawings on heavy Bristol paper, two mounted, one with mat. Each drawing signed by Jacobs. Light soil, scuffing, and a few faint pencil notations to borders. Small closed tear to edge of one board, not affecting mounted drawing. Small rectangular patch affixed to drawing of witch, an apparent correction; blank labels mounted to verso of this drawing only.
