IN THE RARE PRINTED DUSTWRAPPER

HARDIE, Martin John Pettie by Martin Hardie.

A & C Black, 1908.

First edition. Royal 8vo. Brown pictorial cloth with gilt lettering on the spine and upper cover. Top edge gilt, in the scarce printed dustwrapper. Fifty tissue guarded colour illustrations and 8 black and white drawings. A fine, bright copy, with some foxing to the endpapers, in a very good dustwrapper, which has some tape reinforcement to the verso and a hole in the spine.

Scottish born Pettie (1839-1893) excelled at painting heroic scenes from Scotland's history. His palette utilised a rich resonance of colour, and his art was known for its dash and vigour, the pictorial qualities taking precedence over the storytelling which had been the immediate concern of his predecessors. Prolific and industrious he became one of the best known British artists of his day.
