An Almanac of twelve Sports
London: William Heinemann. First Edition. 1897 (dated 1898).
twelve colour lithographs by Nicholson, printed to cartridge paper. Each illustrated sport is associated with a month of the year and comprises: Hunting, Coursing, Racing, Boating, Fishing, Cricket, Archery, Coaching, Shooting, Golf, Boxing and Skating
Original hardback with illustration and title for fron board. A little rubbing to the edges and corners. Slight loss of surface. Rear panel has the "WH" Logo and is clean and tidy. Slight cracking to the front hinge, but holding well. Pages are clean and tidy, but slightly darkened. Overall a decent copy.
Hofstätter 82; Vgl. The Artist & The Book 217: "Nicholson brought a simplification of design to English illustration. His windmill drawn for Heinemann's device on the on the title-page is still used by the firm."
