Original Full-Colored Print by Renowned Artist Cecil Aldin

"It Was Grand The Mess I Made With All The Feathers"

Here is your chance to own a very rare and beautiful vintage print. You can read more about Cecil Aldin below.

  • From the Book "The Dog Who Wasn't What He Thought He Was"
  • Written by Walter Emanuel, Published by Raphael Tuck & Sons, London, 1914
  • Plate measures roughly 10-1/4" x  8-1/4"
  • Matted in black, shipped in protective bag and surrounded by cardboard to prevent damage
  • Matte is 11" x 14", Internal aperture is 7-1/2" x  9-1/2"
Born in Slough, England in 1870, Cecil was educated in Solihull Grammar School and eventually went to Eastbourne College. He studied anatomy at South Kensington and animal painting under William Frank Calderon. Some of his early influences included the likes of Randolph Caldecott and John Leech. His drawings first made their way into print in The Building News of 12 September 1890, and began to appear throughout many popular journals and magazines; his work was published in The Graphic in 1891.

Aldin was an enthusiastic sportsman and a Master of Fox Hounds and many of his pictures illustrated hunting.

Some of his illustrations were included in books such as:

  • A Sporting Garland, Sands 1902
  • The Black Puppy Book, Hodder 1909
  • White-Ear and Peter, Macmillan 1912
  • Black Beauty, Jarrold 1912

Do not miss out on this very rare and scarce print by Cecil Aldin. This plate is in very fine condition, just slight browning around the outside edge. Amazing condition for a print that is over 100 years old! If you have any questions about this or any other print I have listed, please don't hesitate to ask!

You can bid with confidence with a seller of 100% positive feedback.
