Etching on india paper, 200 x 150mm. 8 x 6".
The postman is mobbed at the door by children looking for valentine cards. By George Bernard O'Neill (1828-1917), published in 'Etchings for the Art Union of London by the Etching Club', plate 5. Sentimental paintings of children were extremely popular with Victorian audiences. Critics often dismissed such pictures as intellectually undemanding, yet some of the most important artists of the day took up the subject. The emotion of these pictures centre on a new, 19th century conception of childhood as an innocent, separate state to be shielded and prolonged.

["Kirkwhite's Birthplace"]
Harold F Collinson [pencil signature.]
[British, n.d., c.1920s.]
Etching, laid paper, scarce, 180 x 130mm. 7 x 5". Paper punctured at upper platemark.
A street scene, Nottingham; captioned to verso in pencil. Henry Kirke White (1785 - 1806), was a poet; the house in which he is said to have been born is in Exchange Alley. In c.1900 the lower portion was a butcher's shop, the upper portion is a tavern with the sign of ‘The Kirke White.’ Initially a clerk in a legal practice, White decided to pursue a career in the church. To raise funds for this move he published a small volume of poems in 1803, which was not successful. In 1805, he began studying at Cambridge where he became a highly regarded scholar. However, the punishing regime he set himself made him ill and he died of consumption at the age of twenty-one. After his death a large quantity of verse and prose was found among his papers, which was published as The Remains of Henry Kirke White with an Account of his Life (1807). This volume, which went to ten editions, formed the basis of White's reputation as a promising poet who had died tragically young. Harold Frank Collinson (1886 - 1955). Collinson was the etching master at Nottingham Municipal School of Art. He left Nottingham in 1940 to live in the United States and died in New York in 1955.

Two figures and laden camels with coconut palms beyond, by Edward Julius Detmold (1883-1957), twin brother to Charles Maurice Detmold (1883-1908). The pair were among the artists associated with the Golden Age of Illustration. They worked together making sketches at the Zoological Gardens and exhibited together from the age of fourteen. He became one of the best Edwardian animal illustrators, known for his subtle placement of animals within their natural environment. Edward expressed artistic versatility and published a number of books of fine fantasy drawings in the 1920s; they portrayed a vivid imagination and he utilised warm colouring, which suited the period. The Jungle Book (1908) was to be the last substantial commission that the brothers worked on - due to the death of Charles in that same year. The extraordinary success of their illustrations to accompany Kipling's classic tale, however, firmly established the reputation for Edward and the following year, a suite of illustrations prepared to Aesop's tales were published in The Fables of Aesop (1909).

Etching, with large margins. 420 x 380mm, 16½ x 15". Margins creased.
Although Adolphe Potémont Martial (1828-83) primarily published topographical etchings of Paris, this has a more political motive. It celebrates the Paris Commune, established when the city revolted against the government that had surrendered to the besieging German army the year before. In the centre is the city arms, with a ship on a stormy sea with the motto "Fluctuat nec mergitur" ("It is tossed by the waves, but does not sink"), with a communard on the left and a German, wearing the spiked 'Pickelhaube' helmet on the right.
Potément published a series of etchings called 'Paris: Siège et Commune' at the end of 1871, but this print is much larger.
