Title

Aunt Louisa's Golden Gift

Description

Henry W. Herrick (1824–1906) was a prolific illustrator and art instructor, creating images for Harper’s Weekly and Appleton’s, as well as book illustrations for Hurd & Houghton, Louis Prang & Company, and McLoughlin Brothers. He taught at the New York School of Design for Women and at Yale College. After 1865 he turned to watercolor painting, exhibiting his work at the National Academy of Design. Herrick was skilled at human figure work and he was one of the artists, along with Thomas Nast and Justin H. Howard, to be regularly credited by McLoughlin Brothers on the cover or title pages of their books. His designs appear in a wide range of titles, from Pauline and the Matches (twelve cents wholesale, twenty-five cents retail) to a fancy bound edition of Aunt Louisa’s Golden Gift, which included a compilation of over twenty short stories and verses paired with elegant, bronze-tinted illustrations and sold for $1.50 in bookshops.
The gift of Herbert H. Hosmer, 1978
