Item #40773 Signed Leaflet. Vernon Howe BAILEY.

Signed Leaflet.

This American artist was an illustrator for "Harper's Weekly" and other publications and also illustrated many books, but is best known for drawings and painting of American and European street scenes -- cityscapes, buildings. Item #40773

Signed leaflet, heavy buff stock 6" X 9", 4pp, n.p., n.y. Fine. Reproduction of Bailey's lithograph of St. Paul's Chapel, with printed caption beneath "Columbia University / in the City of New York / on the / New York Central." Just below the image the artist boldly inscribes "To Arnold Gates" and signs in full in black ink. Inner pages (2 and 3) blank, and fourth page features two columns of text about Columbia University (front and rear pages thus display nicely side by side). No publisher or year noted, but likely of 1930s vintage and presumably a New York Central marketing piece. Arnold F. Gates (1914-93) became a noted Lincoln and Civil War scholar.
