    More Information: Lot of 40 Fine Illustrations Depicting Scenes From Classic Literature. These wonderful illustrations feature vignettes from some of the greatest works of literature as illustrated by exceptional artists. Each plate measures 8.25 inches x 11.25 inches and is complete with a tissue guard on which is printed excerpts from the work it depicts as well as information on the artist who illustrated it. The paper has toned a bit and there is a damp stain along the edge of each plate which typically doesn't affect the illustration. This damp stain would be inconsequential once each is framed and matted. These beautiful illustrations would make a perfect addition to the décor of any home, school, or office.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
