Notes

First edition, first impression, 750 copies were printed; rare: according to Copac there are no copies located in British and Irish institutional libraries, nor does it appear in OCLC. With a note, possibly in Fothergill's hand (dated 1916): "The whole of the Manuscripts & Drawings were destroyed by fire which occurred in Messrs Neill & Co's premises". An Artist's Thoughts in Verse & Design was privately published in a de luxe folio edition in 1919. George Algernon Fothergill (1868-1945) was a watercolourist and illustrator best known for his equestrian studies; his Twenty Sporting Designs (Edinburgh 1911), also published by Neill, is in the Paul Mellon Collection (see Podeschi, Books on the Horse and Horsemanship, 308).
