‘ANATOMY FOR ARTISTS’ BY JOHN MARSHALL (BKS 1036)
Reference Code: BKS 1036
A collectible for students of art history, this copy of John Marshall’s ‘Anatomy for Artists’ has a unique feature: it possesses a gift inscription from John Lockwood Kipling (father of Rudyard Kipling) to Munshi Sher Muhammad, a colleague and student of Kipling’s at the Mayo School of Industrial Arts (now the National College of Arts) in Lahore.
Lockwood Kipling was at one time the principal of the Mayo School, and solicited Munshi to work with him on various projects. Some of Munshi’s artwork can also be seen in Lockwood Kipling’s book ‘Beast and Man in India’.
This edition of ‘Anatomy for Artists’ is the Third, published in 1890 by Smith, Elder, & Co. The book contains 200 original drawings by J. S. Cuthbert. 14 pages of prefatory matter are followed by 436 pages of text. The book is approximately 7.8 inches wide, 11.2 inches tall, and 1.4 inches thick.
The book is in fair condition. The boards are heavily rubbed, stained, torn, and worn in various places. Pieces of the spine are missing from the top and bottom. Gilt titling is faded. The binding is solid. Page edges are stained; gilt top edges are scuffed and faded. Internally there is some foxing, but this is mostly confined to the endpapers. There are some marginal stains to the first few and last few dozen pages; these pages are rounded/sheared as well. There are some page creases also, but there are no markings, tears, or significant defects to the main text.
