    Harriet Roosevelt Richards Jack and Jill: A Village Story and Other Illustrations Original Art Group of 6 (c. 1891-1939). Fans of Louisa M. Alcott's perennial Little Women will be delighted to find Richards' delicate, large-scale illustration for the lesser-known Alcott novel Jack and Jill. Also included is John Alonzo Willliams' (as J.A.W.) greyscale watercolor of a matronly rustic, from Alice Brown's "Confessions: A Story" (Harper's Monthly Magazine, 1912). Williams (now signing as J. A. Williams) also brings to life Alice Brown's "The Man in the Cloister," from Harper's, 1909. Alice Harvey's pencil drawing of a child cringing from Santa Claus comes from an early issue of Life, 'way back when it was a humor magazine. Vernon Howe Bailey's pencil drawing of London's Charing Cross Station Yard dates from 1909. And H.H. Stoops pictures a prairie-campfire altercation in dry-brush ink for Max Brand's "Half a Partner" (Blue Book, 1939). Varied media, varied art-board stock. Image areas, 16" square to 20" x 26". The Richards/Alcott piece is conspicuously fragile, afflicted with marginal chipping, but intact in the image area. Conditions range from Very Good to Fair, with degrees of age-toning.
