Description: Watercolor drawing on paper. Image measures 6 5/8" x 5 5/8".

Comments: This original watercolor drawing by Daniel C. Beard depicts a pair of iron rimmed classes and their accompanying pasteboard case. The drawing dates from 1892, when Beard worked as an illustrator for books by Mark Twain, Ernest Crosby, and others. The choice of subject matter no doubt relates both to his early career as an engineer and surveyor, as well as to his later dedication to the pioneering spirit through his involvement with the Boy Scouts of America. This original drawing is in good condition with a charming yellow border. Daniel Carter Beard (1850-1941) was an American illustrator, author, youth leader, and social reformer. In 1905, he founded the Sons of Daniel Boone, a youth organization that taught American frontier traditions and skills to young boys. In 1910, he merged his organization with the Boy Scouts of America and became actively involved in the Scouts and other youth organizations.

Let me take a moment to let you know how pleased I am not only with your timeliness and help, but also your honesty and commitment to your customers. As an instructor at Duquesne University, I am always telling my students about responsibility and, lately, some of the book dealers have given me unnecessary difficulties... I am very pleased with the service I received from your company and will inform my fellow faculty members that they can look forward to professional service from your book shop. Again many thanks and I look forward to future dealings with your company. - Tom W.
