      “HOWARD PYLE: HIS LIFE–HIS WORK,” a new, 2-volume publication we are very
      excited about, is now published and in stock here at Oak Knoll. Paul Preston
      Davis, with exhaustive research and dogged perseverance, has produced a
      much-needed resource for the study of Howard Pyle and American illustration.
      Illustrated with over 3300 images (approx. 1.25 x 2.25 inches in size), this
      important research tool represents the complete record of all known Howard
      Pyle illustrations, hundreds of which have not been reproduced since their
      original publication over 100 years ago.

      Because Howard Pyle influenced so many other great American illustrators,
      like the Wyeth family and Frank Schoonover, we decided to offer a catalogue
      comprising over 125 books either about or illustrated by Pyle, the Wyeths or
      Frank Schoonover. To view this catalogue, click the following link:

      HOWARD PYLE: HIS LIFE–HIS WORK

      By Paul Preston Davis

      At the dawn of the 20th century, Howard Pyle was America's most famous and
      influential illustrator. Through the illustrated pages of Harper's,
      Scribner's and Century magazines, the American public first became
      acquainted with the illustrator that they would come to love. Both by
      example and through his teaching, Pyle molded and influenced generations of
      young artists who have continued his unique vision of illustration far
      beyond his own lifetime. This book celebrates the enduring and far-reaching
      achievements of America's foremost illustrator.

      Davis’ work greatly expands upon the data originally collected by Willard
      S. Morse and Gertrude Brincklé in 1921. For the first time, full-color
      images (approx. 1.25 x 2.25 inches) of each of Pyle's published and
      unpublished works are provided in a single source. Most importantly for the
      researcher, Davis has indexed and re-indexed the information, creating a
      tool that is as easy to use as it is valuable. This remarkable and
      comprehensive set of books embodies years of research and will be valued and
      treasured by researchers, scholars, librarians, and collectors alike.
      Co-published with The Delaware Art Museum.
