Jersey City, NJ: Joseph Dixon Crucible Company, n.y. Suite of 12 black-and-white prints, 4to (8¼" X 11"), housed loose in printed wrappers. Fine/very good. Prints are sharp and pristine, wrappers show mild edgewear, mainly along centerfold. Item #47200
Handsome complete set of 12 prints, all bold pencil sketches by this Massachusetts pencil maestro (1884-1969), an educator, print maker and author of instructional booklets. Each scene depicts a famed European gothic church or specific gothic elements in each. The "Pencil Sales Department" listed alongside the publisher tells you these prints are also a promotional vehicle for pencil products, as does the brief text on each print describing the specific Eldorado pencils used and technique tips! Undated, but seemingly of 1940s vintage. A superb full set of a grouping most often found incomplete.
