SCHOONOVER CATALOGUE RAISONNE. 2 Volumes. New Castle, Delaware: Oak Knoll Press, 2009, 9x12 inches, 2 volumes, hardcover with slipcase. 846 pages. First edition. Frank E. Schoonover (1877-1972) is recognized as one of the foremost illustrators of his time. His prolific contribution to American illustration spanned more than 40 years and included more than 2200 illustrations. This two-volume, slip-cased Frank E. Schoonover Catalogue Raisonné embodies Schoonover's entire oeuvre, from his earliest sketches to his last easel paintings. The book is chronologically organized with the numeration based on his daybook entries. Included are over 3000 images, many in full color, a detailed biography with accompanying time line, information about his models and students, lists of exhibitions and the magazines he illustrated, two additional bibliographies, and three indices. It is comprehensive in scope and will stand as the pre-eminent record of Schoonover, his life, and his work. Davis, Paul Preston. HOWARD PYLE HIS LIFE -- HIS WORK. 2 volumes. New Castle and Wilmington: Oak Knoll Press and The Delaware Art Museum, 2004, 9x12 inches., hardcover, dust jacket. 906 pages. Paul Preston Davis, with exhaustive research and dogged perseverance, has produced a much-needed resource for the study of Howard Pyle and American illustration. His work greatly expands upon the data originally collected by Willard S. Morse and Gertrude Brincklé in 1921. For the first time, full-color images (approx. 1.25 x 2.25 inches) of each of Pyle's published and unpublished works are provided in a single source. Most importantly for the researcher, Davis has indexed and re-indexed the information, creating a tool that is as easy to use as it is valuable. This remarkable and comprehensive set of books embodies years of research and will be valued and treasured by researchers, scholars, librarians, and collectors alike. Co-published with The Delaware Art Museum. Two works in four total volumes. Donated by Oak Knoll Books, New Castle, Delaware. Lot Amendments Condition: Fine. Item number: 243366
