Title: Armorial Families: A Complete Peerage, Baronetage, and Knightage, and a Directory of some Gentlemen of Coat-Armour, and Being the First Attempt To Show Which Arms in Use at the Moment Are Borne by Legal Authority
Editor: Arthur Charles Fox-Davies
Publisher: T. C. & E. C. Jack, Grange Publishing Works (Edinburgh)
Printing Year: 1895 First Edition

Condition/Details: Bound in cloth with gilt embossing on the spine and on the bottom right corner of the front board, this antique folio volume is a scarce original edition of this celebrated work on heraldry by Arthur Charles Fox-Davies (February 28, 1871 – May 19, 1928), a British author, who was by profession a barrister but also worked as a journalist and novelist. Fox-Davies' writing on heraldry is characterized by a passionate attachment to heraldry as art, as history and also as law. He was something of a polemicist, and issued one of his most controversial works (The Right to Bear Arms) under a pseudonym ("X"). However, he always supported his arguments with specific historical and manuscript evidence.

He conducted a lifelong campaign against the bearing of coats of arms without lawful authority in accordance with the Law of Arms, whether that authority was a right recognized at the Visitations conducted by heralds between the 16th to 18th centuries or, more commonly, a right deriving from a specific grant entered in the records of the College of Arms. In support of this campaign, he produced a directory which attempted to list all living bearers of arms in England and Wales who could prove such authority, under the title Armorial Families. This served as an incentive to families who did not have such authority to regularize their position at the College of Arms. The size of the work increased considerably until its final edition in 1929, which remains the most comprehensive published record (the records of the College of Arms being largely unpublished) of post-Victorian heraldry in Britain. Many of the arms were illustrated with specially commissioned heraldic drawings, and Fox-Davies drew on this large resource when illustrating his more systematic treatises on heraldry.

This lot features the following piece of artwork: Outside Over There

Artist: Maurice Sendak
Medium: Commercial lithography
Year: 1981
Dimensions: Unframed, measures 14" by 16"

Details/Condition: Maurice Bernard Sendak (born June 10, 1928) is an American writer and illustrator of children's literature. He is best known for his book "Where the Wild Things Are, "published in 1963. Sendak gained international acclaim after writing and illustrating "Where the Wild Things Are," a Caldecott Medal-winning picture book about a boy banished to his bedroom without his supper. He deals with his anger by imagining himself king of an island filled with enormous, frightening monsters. Critically acclaimed and controversial, Sendak is one of the first children's writers to deal frankly with the fears and anxieties of childhood. "Where the Wild Things Are" is the first in a trilogy, to be followed by "In the Night Kitchen" (1970) and "Outside over There" (1981), which, in Sendak's words, are "all variations on the same theme: how children master various feelings--anger, boredom, fear, frustration, jealousy--and manage to come to grips with the realities of their lives."

Mr. Sendak's original drawings are constantly in demand by museums, art galleries and collectors everywhere. Although most of his original work is archived at the Rosenbach Museum & Library in Philadelphia, his pictures are represented in many major collections around the world. It understates his importance to simply call him a genius in his field: he has been called "the Picasso of Children's Books", and for more than a half-century his work has been critically praised, admired and emulated. Retrospective exhibitions have been held at the Ashmolean Museum (Oxford, 1975), the Pierpont Morgan library (New York, 1981), the Indianapolis Museum of Art (1999), the Brennan Jewish Heritage Museum in Atlanta (2001, a version of which went on national tour), the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Books (November 2002), Brandywine River Museum (2003), and most recently a remarkable survey of his art at the Jewish Museum (New York, 2005) covering both his book work and sets/costumes for opera and ballet, subsequently extending the show to the Tampa Art Museum in Florida (2006).

This is an original full-color poster issued for this Caldecott Honor book. Here Ida holds her baby sister while her Mama looks out to sea from a rocky shore, ships in full masts in the distance in what is an unmistakable intertextual reference to German Romantic painter Caspar David Friedrich's allegorical oil painting "The Stages of Life" (1835). The work (Hanrahan C9) is HAND SIGNED by the artist. It should be noted that all of the Sendak posters in this auction come directly from the artist's own archive. Shipping cost (within the U.S.) for this lot will be: $9.50 Shipping cost (within the U.S.) for this lot will be: $9.50
