Pictures by Russell Clark.
Published by A.H. & A.W. Reed 182 Wakefield Street, Wellington New Zealand [n.d., c.1954].
Book of eleven large lithographic plates (each printed in two colours), stapled so oblong folio, c.355 x 505mm (14 x 19¾"). Original printed blue wrappers (detached). Scarce. Wrappers a little soiled and bumped; plates clean and fresh. Scenes of traditional Maori life; a set of illustrations to an educational book for children about the indigenous peoples of New Zealand, by Alexander Wyclif Reed (1908 - 1979). "Russell Clark (1905-1966) began his long association with the School Journal in 1940. Towards the end of World War II he was commissioned as an official war artist; it was after his return to Wellington at the end of the war that Clark’s influence was felt at the School Journal. Clark’s illustrations were recognised for their close observation of the world, fine design, and skilled drawing. In 1947 he was described in the Year Book of the Arts in New Zealand as the "most experienced, witty and sophisticated illustrator" at the School Journal. Clark also made many of the decisions about which artist would illustrate each poem, story or article, and one of his colleagues later described him as the School Journal’s first, if unofficial, art editor. In 1948 the School Journal published a book-length feature about traditional Maori life. 'Life in the Pa' featured over 100 drawings by Clark. Between 1948 and 1951 Clark made a number of visits to the Tuhoe iwi in the Ureweras, and his illustrations, paintings and sculpture featuring Maori subjects are a highlight of his work. Clark continued to produce drawings for the School Journal into the 1950s, after he moved on to work for the New Zealand Listener. In 1975 his contribution to the publication was recognised with the establishment of the Russell Clark Award, for excellence in children's book illustration. " National Libary of New Zealand.

A. Russell pinx. 1710. I. Smith fec.
Mezzotint. Image 351 x 253mm. 13¾ x 10". Trimmed to just outside the platemark. Henry Sacheverell (1674-1724) was an English High Church clergyman and politician. He came to fame when preacher at St Saviour's, Southwark. His famous sermons on the church in danger from the neglect of the Whig ministry to keep guard over its interests were preached, the one at Derby on 15 August 1709, the other at St Paul's Cathedral on 5 November 1709. They were immediately reprinted, the latter being dedicated to the lord mayor and the former to the author's kinsman, George Sacheverell who was high sheriff of Derbyshire that year, and, as the passions of the whole British population were at this period keenly exercised between the rival factions of Whig and Tory; Sacheverell's arguments on behalf of the church which supplied the Tories with most of their support made him their idol.
