ASK FOR PHOTOGRAPHS OF CORNERS AND MARGINS. The image itself is fine and clear.Edmund Hort New ( 1871 - 1931) , English artist, member of the Birmingham Group and leading illustrator of his day was was born in Evesham Worcestershire. He studied at the Birmingham Municipal School of Art under Edward R. Taylor (headmaster of the school) and A. J. Gaskin, becoming known in the 1890s as an illustrator in the black-and-white style of the Arts and Crafts movement. He specialised in pen and ink drawings of rural and urban landscapes, old buildings and their interiors, architectural features, and also designed bookplates. In his early years he worked with Ruskin and other associated Arts and Crafts artists. New provided illustrations for the English Illustrated Magazine and was commissioned by the Bodley Head publishing house to work on critically acclaimed editions of books, such as The Compleat Angler by Izaak Walton and The Natural History of Selborne by Gilbert White.In 1895 New was invited to meet William Morris at Kelmscott Manor, and went on to provide design work for the Kelmscott Press as well as illustrating Morris's two-volume biography by J. W. Mackail. Between 1896 and 1914, New provided hundreds of illustrations for over 50 books for various publishers He also taught drawing to T E Lawrence In 1905 New moved to Oxford where he started work on a series of drawings of the University of Oxford colleges, based on the David Loggan's 1675 aerial perspectives, a project which was to occupy him for the rest of his life and remained unfinished. The drawings were engraved by Emery Walker and sold as the "New Loggan Prints". He also provided further illustrations for a series of books called the "College monographs" New was a member of the Society of Friends (Quakers).Sanders of Oxford describe the printing process as follows: These prints were made through a relatively new process at the time - photo engraving. Like photogravures the print is made by transferring a photo to a copper plate and then printing it. With the E.H. New prints, a contact print of New's pen and ink drawing was made and the large negative attached to a plate which was then exposed in an acid bath, the acid only biting where the negative was clear; thus, creating an engraved plate of New's drawing. The prints were available separately at shops in Oxford such as Ryman's in the early part of the 20th century and are on a cotton wove paper with an anvil watermark i.e. the paper is from stock made for the Kelmscott press.
