About This Item

Middlesex, England; New Castle, Delaware: Private Libraries Association; Oak Knoll Press, 2016. First edition. Hardcover. New/new. 325pp. Small quarto [28 cm] Navy blue cloth over boards. From the Publisher- "The Book and Periodical Illustrations of Arthur Hughes is the first detailed account of the work of this somewhat neglected Pre-Raphaelite artist between 1855 and 1913.

"Many of his books were intended for children, including such classics as At the Back of the North Wind and The Princess and the Goblin, first published by Alexander Strahan in Good Words for the Young, 1869-71.

"Designs by Arthur Hughes for Christina Rossettis Sing-Song and Speaking Likenesses were notable for their witty accompaniment to her poetry and prose, matching the curiosity of texts created to amuse (or terrify) Victorian and Edwardian children.

"The book is fully illustrated in black and white and includes an eight page color section. Appendices include a checklist of the books and periodicals, with a supporting bibliography and extensive notes. In all an invaluable account of the illustrative work of a Pre-Raphaelite artist so long undervalued by collectors.

"Dr. Maroussia Oakley has been enthused by the illustrative work of Arthur Hughes for many years, and has already written a number of articles about his work. She has published transcriptions of letters by his publisher Alexander Strahan, and also written on John Everett Millais, print technology, and the Dalziel Archive in the British Museum.
