    [Maitres de l'Affiche]. [Antique Posters] Lot of Four Color Lithograph Prints of Extraordinary French Late 19th Century Posters. [Paris]: Imprimerie Chaix, 1896-1900. 12" x 16". Matted. Some toning, else very good. Les Maîtres de l'Affiche ("Masters of the Poster") was a subscription series conceived and edited by the great French poster artist Jules Cheret, the "Father of the Poster" who revolutionized advertising art through his designs and his innovative color lithography techniques. His series reproduced the spectacularly colorful and lively advertising posters that had burst upon the European scene and delighted the public in the waning years of the nineteenth century. Cheret's series reproduced these extremely popular posters in a reduced, manageable version while still retaining the authentic vivid colors of the originals.

    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.
