Comments

The Collector's Library of Famous Editions. Illustrated with drawings by Reginald Marsh. "Marsh's abilities won him employment on the N.Y. Daily News as graphic artist, illustrator, and draftsman. His vivacious drawings, which began to appear in The New Yorker, attracted the favorable attention of critics who were entranced by Marsh's depictions of the common people, of commuters riding on the ferries, of Bowery bums asleep along ash cans, of strip-tease artists in burlesque shows, of the audience breathlessly watching." - The Easton Press
