 Two books relating to noted illustrator A. B. Frost:

1. Stuff and Nonsense, pub. by Charles Scribner's Sons, 1888, written and illustrated by A. B. Frost. This is listed in Overstreet as the first ever anthology collecting comics strips by a single American artist. An historically important early Ancestor of the graphic novel. These are strips and comics from Harper's Monthly. Beautiful humorous drawings, crisp images. All black and white, hardcover, no DJ. Fair condition, spine printing is completely gone, front board is somewhat loose. Front cover is faded and soiled. Pages are intact, a few have minor soiling, and two or three have very small amounts of watercolor coloring of images. Inside back cover is pasted a thorough 1939 newspaper obituary of Frost. Scarce in any condition.

2. The A. B. Frost Book, Wyrick & Co., 1992, by Henry M. Reed. This is the definitive biography of Frost, one of the great American artists. Frost is known as a painter of wildlife and hunting themes, and a prolific book illustrator. His comics appeared in Harper's Monthly newspaper. His friend, the great Thomas Eakins, was a major influence. Profusely illustrated in b/w and color, this is a brand new book, hardcover in prestince dust jacket, published at $49.95.

This auction is for both books together as one lot. Together they make a great gift, or are a must for the enthusiast of Victorian-Age comics or American art.
