Mrs. Whitman brought to her work a spare elegance and an Arts & Crafts sensibility that reflected the influence of Dante Gabriel Rossetti, James Whistler and Japanese fabric design. By the mid-1890s, Whitman’s innovative designs were ranked with those of William Morris, Walter Crane, Elihu Vedder and Stanford White. She designed the Houghton Mifflin book pavilion for the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition, and according to the Dictionary of National Biography is regarded as "the pioneer of modern cloth cover design".

According to Gullans and Espey, Margaret Armstrong became “the single most important woman in this branch of decorative design” after Sarah Wyman Whitman, and was a “source of inspiration and encouragement” to women who would follow in her path, notably Amy Sacker, Marion Louise Peabody, Amy Richards, Lee Thayer and Bertha Stuart.

Later he moved to book and magazine line illustration and painted in his later years. In 1940, his mural “Scene at the Signing of the Constitution of the United States” was installed in the US Capitol Building and is still on display there. Franklin Booth (1874 – 1948), was one of the most influential artists of the Golden Age of illustration. He had a self-taught style that resulted from mistaking wood engravings as pen and ink drawings as a child and copying them to produce drawings with detailed line work and beautiful tone created by his use of line. He later trained briefly at the Chicago Art Institute and was widely known for and an unusual compositional style that gives a feeling of soaring space and height. His style greatly influenced the work of his contemporary, Howard Pyle, and it can also be seen in Maxfield Parrish's work, since he was Pyle's student. His work appeared in most of the major American magazines, and heproduced cover art and illustrations for a series of books, art for both the WW I and WWII war efforts, and for advertising. In his later years he co-founded and taught at the Phoenix Art Institute.

13 [Copeland, Charles]; Long, William J. NORTHERN TRAILS SOME STUDIES OF ANIMAL LIFE IN THE FAR NORTH
Boston Ginn and Company 1905 First Edition Cloth Near fine Charles Copeland 
8vo. (8” x 6.25”). pp. [xxvi]; 390. First Edition. A stunning unsigned publisher’s binding by Charles Copeland of titles and a wolf silhouetted against the moon rendered in black and gilt on green buckram cloth; titles and vignettes of the seashore and a wolf’s head on the spine. Color frontis.with tissue guard and twelve full-page illustrations in black and white with numerous marginal illustrations as well as head and tail pieces by Charles Copeland. A beautiful copy that has seen little use. Northern Trails is a collection of nature stories based on the author’s travels in Labrador and New Foundland, and takes up the narrative of a white wolf named Wayeeses, along with stories of salmon, wild geese and polar bear. The book also contains a complete index and glossary of First Nation (native) names for the species. Although Long asserted the stories were based on fact from his observations, Theodore Roosevelt classed the book as a fairy tale along the lines of Kipling’s “Jungle Book” or London’s “Call of the Wild”, since Long’s descriptions of animal behavior were not remotely close to what Roosevelt had observed in the wild. Charles Copeland (1858–1945 ) was a 19th C. Romantic painter in both watercolor and oil, and was a member of the Boston Art Club and the Boston Society of Water Color Painters with Childe Hassam and John Singer Sargent. His illustrations in Northern Trails are a delightful detailed Arts and Crafts representation of Northern Canadian wildlife.

A significant piece of piece of social and cultural history of the early 20th century, Mary Frances Housekeeper is a snapshot of family life of the time that was designed to teach the art of housekeeping to childern in a fun and entertaining way. The book is also important in how it subtly enforced racist stereotyping in its young readers through its narrative and the physical depiction of the servant doll, Lucinda, whose paper doll body is ‘comical and distorted’ (Everyday Life & Women in America c.1800-1920). Because Mary Frances Housekeeper includes cut out dolls and furnature for children to use in play, it is difficult to find an intact copy. In very good condition with light to moderate edgewear, rubbing to the edges of the paper onlay and a small (1”) area of rubbing and open tear to ffep that does not affect the designs.

A series of 10 Arabian Nights stories that were, as Kate Douglas Wiggin states in her preface, “shortened here and there, omitting some…repetitions that crept in from time to time…”. This is a book that will delight children of all ages, for as Ms. Wiggin so deftly put it, “Nowhere in the whole realm of literature will you find such a Marvel, such a Wonder…of a book.” Parrish's unforgettable illustrations deftly place the wonder of these tales into the realm of legend. Ludwig pp. 205 Maxfield Parrish (1870 - 1966) was a student of Howard Pyle at the Drexel Institute of Art and a member of the Brandywine School of American illustration. He preferred the use of luminous colors for his illustrations -- the colors of twilight, and was much influenced by the color pallete of the Southwest. He was a prolific illustrator of books, magazines and ephemera such as calendars and posters. In his later years he gave up illustration and concentrated solely on his painting.
