Deluxe Edition - Bound in full crimson leather in a matching cloth-covered slipcase. The edition size is 300. At long last, we now have a complete, full-color catalogue raisonné of all the prints published by Derrydale Press--from 1928 to 1948--there are 127 in all. These images were executed by the most prominent and skilled sporting artists of the 20th Century, including William Schaldach, Roland Clark, Edward King, and W. Goadby Lawrence. And they are quintessentially American images--the compositions and subject matter are indisputedly part of our collective mind's eye when we think of the convergence of art and sport. This new oversized book reproduces some of the more remarkable prints, and includes full biographical sketches of the artists along with complete indexes of prints, dimensions, and edition sizes. Also included is a discussion and full explanation of the types of prints Eugene V. Connett produced: drypoints, etchings, aquatints, gravures and stone lithographs. This is an absolutely essential book for all the who cherish the fine visual tradition of sport in America.
