About This Item

TBwyeth_last_mohicans1919

At a time in the 1940s I was at my grandparents old house, rooting around in the attic/play room of my father and his brother and sister. I was just looking at old toys on shelves when I discovered some books, among them "The Last of the Mohicans" and "The Boys King Arthur." I was enough taken by the illustrations of these two books to read all of the first and some of the latter (I got confused by all the weird names). And, I noted most of the drawings were by someone named Wyeth. This travel bug is an Illustration from The Last of the Mohicans.

N. C. (Newell Convers) Wyeth (1882-1945) was an American artist and illustrator. He initially earned his living as an illustrator of western stories, after having taken two trips to live and work in the west. By 1911, N.C. Wyeth began to move away from Western subjects and on to illustrating classic literature. He painted a series for an edition of Treasure Island (1911), by Robert Louis Stevenson. The Last of the Mohicans (1919) and The Boy's King Arthur (1922; title page only) came later. Wyeth would read a book thoroughly before doing the contracted illustrations.
