    Lot of Two Smith & Wesson Framed Prints of "The Hostiles"
    Two very nice framed prints of "The Hostiles" from the original artwork by Dan Smith. Smith was a magazine illustrator for Leslie's 1890-1897, and after that was an artist-correspondent for Heart newspapers and reported on the Spanish American War. For more than 20 years his covers were used for the Sunday World magazine section. He made at least one trip to the American southwest. "The Hostiles" dates to about 1902. Prints were done by Smith & Wesson 1902-1903 and again in 1935. These early prints were much more colorful than later issues from the 1950s, 1970s and later.

    Both frames measure 21-inches x 35-inches with actual image size approximately 18-inches x 22-inches. The first is a c 1970 re-issue. The second was produced in 1935. The S&W logo at the lower left contains the legend: ...FOR MORE THAN 75 YEARS.

    Condition: 1) Fine. 2) Very good. Retaining much of the rich original color saturation. 2-inch tear near left border. Thumb tack holes present.
