Cloth, 4to, 128 pp, ills. From the blurb: "A singular compliment was paid by Whistler when he pronounced: ''Black-and-white art is summed up in two words - Phil May." One of the most celebrated cartoonists of all time, and among the best-known artists of his own day, May was born in Yorkshire in 1864 and died in London before he was forty. Beginning life in very poverty-stricken circumstances, he suddenly came to the fore in his 20s, and thereafter his career was assured. Enticed to Australia by a high offer, after three years he returned to England, and resumed his bohemian way of life in London, for he was a central figure in some of the more unceremonious clubs and bars of the lively eighteen-nineties. Those days and Phil May's place in them come to life in David Cuppleditch's latest book, which graphically portrays the career of one of the most generous and kind-hearted of men, whose nimble art has so cleverly immortalised the characters and humour of his era." Includes index. Very Good in VG dustwrapper. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE-32671
