London, Milford House A daily newspaper with all issues bound in one volume. Folio 415 x 315 x 80mm Hardcover in original red cloth bindings with gilt title to spine and gilt vignette and title to front board. Illustrated throughout with b/w photographs, drawings, adverts etc. In extremely good condition. The Graphic was founded by William Luson Thomas, a successful artist, wood engraver and social reformer. Earlier he, his brother and his brother-in-law had been persuaded to go to New York and assist in launching two newspapers, Picture Gallery and Republic. Thomas also had an engraving establishment of his own and, aided by a large staff, illustrated and engraved numerous standard works. Exasperated, even angered, by the unsympathetic treatment of artists by the world's most successful illustrated paper, The Illustrated London News, and having a good business sense Luson Thomas resolved to set up an opposition. His illustrated paper, despite being more expensive that its competition, became an immediate success. In 1889, Luson Thomas's company H. R. Baines and Co. commenced publication of the first daily illustrated newspaper in England, which was called The Daily Graphic. Artists employed on The Graphic and The Daily Graphic at the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century included John Charles Dollman, Helen Allingham, Edmund Blampied, Alexander Boyd, Frank Brangwyn, Randolph Caldecott, James H. Dowd, Harry Furniss, Phil May, Ernest Prater, Leonard Raven-Hill, Sidney Sime, Snaffles (Charles Johnson Payne), George Stampa, Edmund Sullivan, Bert Thomas and F. H. Townsend, Luke Fildes and Henry Woods. Some of the major world news events during this period were The Wright brothers' third aeroplane (Wright Flyer III) stays in the air for 39 minutes with Wilbur piloting, the first aeroplane flight lasting over half an hour, Irish nationalist Arthur Griffith founds Sinn Féin in Dublin as a political party whose goal is independence for all of Ireland, The title Prime Minister of the United Kingdom is officially recognized by Edward VII. A very heavy item therefore shipping will cost more than the ABE default setting. Please contact the seller for a quotation. N° de ref. de la librería 001662
