ILLUSTRATED LONDON NEWS SUPPLEMENT MARCH 17TH 1900 BY S BEGG - THEIR QUEEN AND EMPRESS

£39.99

Product description

This is a large (23" x 15 3/4") 59 x 40cm print of a painting by S Begg from the London Illustrated Times (March 17th 1900) entitled "Their Queen and Empress." Samuel Begg worked as a black and white artist at the London Illustrated News for twenty five years and is much collected. Under the title are the words "Her Majesty listening to a despatch describing the elation of her troops at the service they had rendered their Queen." During my research I could only find one copy of this supplement for sale on Abe Books which was in very good condition and on sale for over £200. I can no longer find this and so I assume it has sold. This copy is unfortunately not in very good condition. There are two tears running along the folded line one each end - one 15cm, the other 4.5cm in the boarder. There are also a couple of half moon tears on the fold mark one 5cm the other 2.5xcm. There are no actual losses from here (the paper is folded up) and so a restorer should be able to stabilise this. There is one loss on the bottom boarder under the text (see photos) measuring 2cm. The rest is in quite good condition with just a little discolouring. It will be carefull packed due to its delicate state.
