    More Information: Lot of 11 Robert Seymour Illustrations From the Adventures of a Cockney Sportsman. From An Evening's Amusement; or the Adventures of a Cockney Sportsman, no place of publication or publisher, 1846 by Richard Brinsley Peake. Illustrated by Robert Seymour. Each full-page illustration measures 5.75 inches x 9 inches. Robert Seymour was a prolific illustrator whose distinctive sketches graced Charles Dickens' Pickwick Papers among many other notable publications of the time. These caricatures were originally from a series of lithographs entitled Sketches by Seymour produced between 1834 and 1836 in which he depicts the endearing Cockney in various absurd and outlandish situations involving sporting endeavors more in the realm of the upper classes, mainly shooting and fishing. Each plate is captioned below the illustration. The paper has toned somewhat, mainly along the edges and there may be some light scattered foxing present, else they are in good condition. Seymour's outstanding illustrations once framed would make a wonderful addition to the sportsman's den, office, library or study.

    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.
