J. H. Hansen, Publisher: Cleveland, (c. 1915). Folio, original gray boards,white printed label on upper cover. Twenty color plates, each measuring approx. 7-1/4 x 5 inches (18.3 x 12.5 cm.), tipped onto stiff card mounts, numbered in the upper corners. A good copy of this scarce portfolio. First edition thus of this very good collection of color plates by two of the outstanding American painters of their era: one plate, ''The Little Princess'', is by Parrish, all the others are by Guerin. This publisher first issued a folder, containing 45 plates, under this title in 1917. A ''Student's Edition'' with 30 plates was also issued.. Jules Vallee Guerin (1866-1946) was best known as a muralist, and his most celebrated works are the murals on the interior walls of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. Renowned for his brilliant and subtle use of color, he was the director of color in the architecture and decorations at the Panama-Pacific Exposition in San Francisco in 1915. Maxfield Parrish (1870-1966) continues to be one of the most popular American artists. J. H. Jansen issued portfolios of color prints by Guerin and Parrish in several formats and combinations of images. (Item Id: 122445)
