This fourth b&w annual features over 200 carefully selected works from the Golden Age of pen & ink illustration (1890-1922). Featuring fantastic reproductions of rare, classic art from the likes of Charles Sarka, W.T. Benda, Winsor McCay, Katharine Sturges Dodge, Willy Pogany, Herbert Railton, Rose O'Neill, J.M. Condé, Maynard Dixon, J. Allen St. John (15 pages from his rare pre-ERB fantasy, The Face in the Pool), W.R. Leigh, Gordon Grant and many others. It's a fabulous wealth of the best in pen-and-ink illustration, from fantasy to realism, to drama.

Those who know the work of Herbert Railton with love the several pages, complete with the original text, of The Haunted House by Thomas Hood. Railton could draw crumbling old architecture, houses and castles, better than anyone. And his gnarled trees give Arthur Rackham a run for his money. This rarity is from the original 1896 appearance.

From the original (first) Life Magazine, circa 1900, we get a plethora of wild anthropomorphic animals, early motor cars, trains, and trained elephants, from the likes of Dan Beard, T.S. Sullivant, and Will Crawford.

Charles Sarka can draw highly detailed line work as dynamic and powerful as Joseph Clement Coll, and proves it here with a set of illustrations from Nan of Music Mountain, a book better known as illustrated by N.C. Wyeth. Here we have the illustrations from the original magazine appearance in Everybody's Magazine, 1916.

Handsome squarebound softcover, oversized at 9"x12", and much larger than the full color ImageS at 108 pages, it's nearly three times the size of a regular issue, making this much more of a book than a magazine. Because this is in black and white, Jim put more pages in these special annuals. All material here originally appeared and was meant to be in black and white. And on top of all this, Jim used a cutting-edge printing format called stochastic, which means sharper blacks and much clearer images. And he hand-corrected any defects from the original appearance, so you can't get better reproduction than right here.

These Annuals have always been very popular when we feature them at shows; once you see one, you'll be hooked.
