Enterprising fencing masters soon translated their skills to the use of the walking stick or la canne. Fascinatingly, 'la canne de combat' is still a sport practiced today by thousands of cannistes around the world.

    A Nude Study in Pastel by SCHEPP, E.
    SCHEPP, E.
    A Nude Study in Pastel

    Netherlands: 1960. An original study, in pastels with three nude images. Perhaps a basis for sculpture, as the work shows torsos, and is more sculptural than erotic. The signature is difficult to decipher, but appears to be E Schepp or similar.  The work shows clear skill, and is in very good condition. Appears to have been drawn in the 1960's or 1970's Mounted in passe partout.  The work is held in a glazed wooden frame. The price shown here is for the pastel itself, in the passe partout, but unframed. If you wish the frame, then this is also possible for a small additional cost. (Most of the additional cost is the difficult shipping!) Image 56.6cm x 44.5cm. Frame 77cm x 66cm

    London: Chatto & Windus, 1874. The lithograph double-page illustrations are fabulous, printed in colour and gold, very unusual and creative. Printed by the Dalziel Brothers at their Camden Press. In the original publisher's cloth (there seem to be three variants: green, red or blue) - this one is green. Only 500 copies were ever printed. Boards with wonderful unusual decorations in gilt and black. Corners a little bumped. All edges gilt. Leaves are paginated by letters A - U. Printed one side only, each recto features a full page illustration, beneath which is a rhyme. On each facing page is text expanding upon the histories of the various characters. Preface page partially detached, but present. Two leaves with light marginal tears, some minor foxing throughout. Tiny hole to bottom of page T. Small closed tear to rear free endpaper. Letter from the printer (tipped-in) to front. This is from Gilbert Dalziel, and explains the printing history, the arrangements behind the printing, and the relationship with the artist and printer. 345 x 285 mm (13½ x 11¼ inches). Isabelle Émilie de Tessier (1847 – 1890) who worked under the pseudonym Marie Duval, was a French cartoonist, known as co-creator of the seminal cartoon character Ally Sloper (with her husband). She was married to the artist of this work, who is revealed in this letter as Charles H. Ross. Tessier was one of the first female cartoonists in Europe, and one of four female contributors to the British satirical magazine Fun edited by Ross. Duval was also an actress in the English theatre.
    Neither Copac, nor any current listings of this work identify Charles H. Ross as the illustrator. Perhaps this is our own small contribution to bibliography!
