    (Artists) A fine collection of 20 signed pieces by various American and Englsih arists. Includes William Sartain A.L.S. December 2, 1888 to "Ritchie": "...I am commencing a mezzo, for Fishel Adler & Schwartz I would prefer you to do the printing - but have an idea that Adler thinks Dunbar the best printer in town. ... If you have not delivered prints of the Young Musician-- can I ask you to retain five good proofs for me..."; Maxfield Parrish T.N.S. January 30, 1911 to Mr. Crowningshield: "No, I did not copyright the Meeting House picture." Partially reinforced on verso; Thomas Uwins A.L.S. April 5, 1853: "...I have enclosed the list for the Catalogue, and though not accustomed to put forward my Titles I shold like in this instance to have them printed, both on account of the Queen who ill doubtless visit the exhibition, and as a reply to the many injurious reports which have been circulated to injure me..." Together with another A.L.S. April 2, 1853 inviting one T. Hogarth to view a recently completed picture; Horatio Stone A.L.S. May 19, 1859: "The President ahs this day appointed the art commission consisting of H. K. Brown, J. R. Lambdin & J. F. Kensett... National Art has gained a great triumph-- at such a time faithless prophesies seem out of place -- all artists & friends of art, it is to be hoped, will now cooperate with one sentiment in respect to the Commissioners & by sympathy & confidence cheer them in their arduous & responsible labors..."; Emma Jack Wellman Two A.L.S.'s and a mounted signature; Daniel McKee A.L.S. July 12, 1861; George F. Watts A.L.S. March 27, 1901: "...What I want in public men is a wider & more cosmic view & for ever 7 for ever regret & feel the loss of the Great Poet Thinker & Patriot..."; Daniel Thompson T.N.S. January 30. 1891. Other pieces (too numerous to detail here) include Brother Adrian Lewis, Adolphe Menjou, H.W. Pickersgill, Bernhard Wall (5 pieces), and Perry C. Schales. Overall condition very good to fine. Should be viewed. From the collection of Henry E. Luhrs.
