Early printing, following the first of 1900; a collection of Gibson's satirical yet elegant drawings of high class American life, with several drawings representing the attractive, well-dressed, and independent ladies since called the "Gibson Girl".
"One of the best and most influential illustrators of American life, Gibson's drawings helped to define and inspire a generation, and the phrase 'Gibson Girl' became part of the language. His work, both as an artist and as president of the Society of Illustrators, contributed greatly to the establishment of illustration as a respected profession" (ANB).
Oblong quarto. Original white quarter cloth, brown pictorial boards, top edge gilt.
Light wear to tips, very minor soiling; an excellent copy.
