Single offset color print, 7 x 9.5 inches, matted. Fine.

§ A single illustration by Charles Buckles Falls from Mother Goose (1924). Falls was born in 1874 in Fort Wayne, Indiana. He was an artist, illustrator, publisher, editor and an author, but we know him best today as an illustrator of children's books. His artistic knowledge and training grew entirely from work experience and self-instruction, gained while he was employed in Chicago as an architect's assistant, and a sketch artist at the Chicago Tribune. Falls subsequently moved to New York City, where he landed a job designing book covers for an art studio. He ultimately became a freelance artist and worked in advertising, book, and magazine illustration, printmaking, and poster design, this last bringing him great recognition. Item #124011
