Her work can be found in outstanding galleries and fine art collections across the United States and Europe. Wilson says: "I discovered that through art I can bring images into the world that express my spiritual thoughts and impressions. I can use my art to teach about love, unity, peace and honor. I can praise God. I can bring hope and promise to the souls of my people through the light of color. I can honor our ancestors and thereby keep their memory alive. I can leave a legacy of my love for generations to come."

Wilson's explanation of this piece: "Always look for a rainbow after the rain. As told in the Book of Genesis, a rainbow is a symbol of God's promise to Noah that he would never again destroy the earth. In this landscape, the earth in all her vast glory is viewed by three generations of men, who are the heirs to the promise. If God will not destroy the earth, then man must cherish her." This print is one of 1500 copies. It is signed and numbered 1244/1500 by the artist (affixed with artist's seal as evidence) in the lower left corner, and is printed on 100# acid-free, satin-finish paper. This item comes with a certificate of authenticity issued by Wilson. Wilson published her first limited edition lithographs in 1984, and today countless numbers of African American artists have presented their works as lithographs with many acknowledging Kathleen A. Wilson as one of the pioneers in the industry. (Biographical information courtesy of www.kathleenatkinswilson.com).

Author: William Preston
Publisher: uncredited
Printing Year: 1781

Condition/Details: Bound in leather-covered boards, this antique volume is a scarce early edition of Preston's work on Masonry, with the history of Masonry, ceremonies, songs, anthems and more.

His experiences from this point on made a deep impression upon him, inducing Preston to undertake a major study of Freemasonry, its origin and its teachings, and this effort was intensified when he was elected a Worshipful Master. He discovered a vast body of traditional and historical lore in the old documents of the Craft, and begun modernizing the format of group meetings in such a way as to make ritual accessible, bringing a rudimentary knowledge of the arts and sciences to members of the Fraternity. Preston embarked upon detailed communication with Masons worldwide, so developing extensive knowledge of the Craft, and collecting the material which was to become his best known book, Illustrations of Masonry first published in 1772.

Lot 6261

Title: The Sea Fairies
Author: L. Frank Baum
Publisher: The Reilly & Britton Co.
Printing Year: 1911

Condition/Details: Bound in green cloth and pictorial front board, this antique volume is a the first volume in the "Trot" series, which Baum hoped would replace Oz in his readers' affections. This work is a children's underwater fantasy novel dedicated to the otherwise-unknown "Judith of Randolph, Massachusetts" — most likely one of the child readers who corresponded with the author. Baum had decided to end the Oz series with The Emerald City of Oz in 1910, after six installments over the first decade of the twentieth century. The Sea Fairies was intended to be the first in a new series of fantasy novels, which Baum and Reilly & Britton continued the next year with Sky Island. Unfortunately for author and publisher, the two volumes of the new projected series did not meet with the same success as the Oz books previously had. The first edition of The Sea Fairies sold 12,400 copies in its initial year on the market, where The Emerald City of Oz had sold 20,000. Even when Baum's books experienced a major resurgence in interest and sales in 1918, The Sea Fairies sold only 611 copies that year while the Oz books and even Baum's non-Oz works were selling thousands of copies. Once Baum returned to writing Oz books with The Patchwork Girl of Oz in 1913, the Trot series was retired — but the main characters lived on. Trot and Cap'n Bill are the main protagonists in The Scarecrow of Oz (1915) — the plot of which was reworked from the projected third book in their aborted series — and they play a significant role in The Magic of Oz (1919). Trot appears in The Lost Princess of Oz (1917) and Glinda of Oz (1920) as well. She also plays significant roles in some of Ruth Plumly Thompson's Oz books, and, after that, in official and non-official sequels by various authors. (history courtesy of Wikipedia)

This lot features the following Boydell Shakespeare engraving:

Title: Two Gentlemen of Verona, Act V. Scene III.
Painter: Ang. Kauffman Zucchi
Engraved by: I. Schiavenetti
Year: 1792
Dimensions: Unframed, measures 29" by 24"

Details/Condition: This original engraving comes from John Boydell's collection of engravings depicting Shakespeare scenes. John Boydell (19 January 1720 (New Style) – 12 December 1804) was an eighteenth-century British publisher noted for his reproductions of engravings. He helped alter the trade imbalance between Britain and France in engravings and initiated a British tradition in the art form. A former engraver himself, Boydell promoted the interests of artists as well as patrons and as a result his business prospered. In the 1790s, Boydell began a large Shakespeare venture that included the establishment of a Shakespeare Gallery, the publication of an illustrated edition of Shakespeare's plays, and the release of a folio of prints depicting scenes from Shakespeare's works. Some of the most illustrious painters of the day contributed, such as Benjamin West and Henry Fuseli. (biography courtesy of Wikipedia)
