HOWARD CHANDLER CHRISTY (1873-1952)
SCRIBNER'S / THE BOER WAR. Two posters. Circa 1900.
Each 22x14 1/2 inches, 55 3/4x36 3/4 cm. The Grignard Litho Co., New York. Condition varies, generally B+.
Includes For March / Highland Land Infantry and For April / A Colonial Trooper. Before his meteoric rise to fame as father of the "Christy Girls," the artist was known as a "war illustrator." Christy actually spent time in Cuba during the Spanish American War, where he met Theodore Roosevelt and the Rough Riders, and did a series of drawings on the American Revolution for Scribner's. For this cover story on the Boer War, Christy most likely worked from a photograph.
