Drypoint with pencil signature, with very large margins. Plate 196 x 401mm (7¾ x 15¾").
A rider and camel run towards people and a town to the right, 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).

It is a good example of the French style of architecture, with its tower and corbelled turrets, forestair, and high dormer heads. Over the archway of the door are the words "Pro patria et posteris, 1591." The building contained a jail on the ground floor, and the Countil Chambers, or Court Room, on the first floor, where the Bailies of the Canongate gave their decisions, and where the councillors of the burgh met. The building ceased to have a separate municipal existence in 1856. The projecting clock was added in the last century.]

[n.d., 1934.]
Etching with aquatint in brown ink, 195 x 235mm, 7¾ x 9¼". A good impression, with full margins.
Caratacus is named by Dio Cassius as a son of the Catuvellaunian king Cunobelinus. Caratacus and his brother Togodumnus led the initial defence of Britain against Aulus Plautius's four legions, primarily using guerrilla tactics. They lost much the south-east after being defeated in two crucial battles on the rivers Medway and Thames. Togodumnus was killed and the Catuvellauni's territories were conquered. Caratacus survived and carried on the resistance further west. We next hear of him in Tacitus's Annals, leading the Silures and Ordovices of modern Wales against Plautius's successor as governor, Publius Ostorius Scapula. Finally, in 51, Scapula managed to defeat Caratacus in a set-piece battle, capturing Caratacus's wife and daughter and receiving the surrender of his brothers. Caratacus himself escaped, and fled north to the lands of the Brigantes (modern Yorkshire) where the Brigantian queen, Cartimandua handed him over to the Romans in chains. Plate II to a set of 6 etchings, 'The Pageant of Ludlow', three by Frank Brangwyn and three by Walcott, to celebrate the tercentenary of the production of Milton's Comus at Ludlow Castle. William Walcott R.E (1874 - 1943) was described by Furst as 'next to Brangwyn the greatest decorative etcher this country has produced'.

It was the intention to give hospitality to the pilgrims to the shrine of Edward II., who was buried in the Abbey after being murdered (1327). People flocked to his tomb, miracles were reported, and the New Inn was built to accomodate the crowds. This ancient inn undoubtedly was the halting-place for countless pilgrims, and it remains a striking timbered building with a fine galleried courtyard. It was near here that Robert Raikes, the Father of Sunday Schools, was born.]

E.J. Detmold [pencil signature.] "M.D." "E.J.D." [in pencil.]
"C.M.D" "E.D" [printed into top corners of the image. [n.d. c.1920.]
Etching. Plate 110 x 110mm. 4¼ x 4¼".
This etching is one of the very few etchings produced over four years by the Detmold twins for distribution at Christmas. This impression is double Initalled for both brothers and signed in pencil by Edward. The brothers' individual monograms appear upper left and right in the etching. Edward supervised and edition of the etchings in a very limited number of proofs in 1920. An Eagle with wings spread stands on a branch, below is a bag with 'amitié ' written on it. Edward Julius Detmold (1883-1957) was 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).
