Moss Brothers Illustrations - Mid 20th Century India Ink, Style and Horsemanship

Item Sold


A set of ten original mid 20th Century illustrations for the menswear brand, Moss Bros booklet entitled 'Notebook on Applied Fox-Hunting'. All ten studies appear similar in size with a paper overlay fixed to the upper edge. A number of designs have been signed 'Douglas', titled and inscribed with comic phrases in a striking, graphic typography. These amusing illustrations were probably produced to accompany customer purchases as a creative marketing material, although it is unclear whether the booklets were ever published and distributed. The illustrations have been additionally inscribed on the reverse 'Client:-Moss Bros' titled 'Notebook on Applied Fox Hunting' and given reference numbers. On wove.


The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration. There is surface dirt, scuffing to the edges and foxing spots across all ten pages, as shown.


30.5 x 19.1cm (12" x 7.5")
Sheet: 38.9 x 29.3cm (15.3" x 11.5")
