Frederick Carter proof wood engraving. Image size 9.5 x 12 cm pencil signed from the folio. These are proof wood engravings all but two signed in pencil to the image with numbering very indistinctly and often title at foot of each sheet They are printed to off-white laid paper sheets, each sheet size approx. 35 x 25 cm rather resembles large sheets of the old fashioned Jeyes toilet paper. So may have been preparatory work on cheaper paper. . . a few are signed to the back of the page instead of the front. All are sent mounted with the sheet entire to protect them as the paper would be easily damaged/creased on some the signature is to the foot of the page ie behind the mount .Illustrations appear to be as used in Carter's book 'Dragon of the Alchemists' (1926), the first volume in a trilogy. The book had a total of thirty-eight wood-engraved plates these are a few.


Height : 12 cm - 4.72 in
