Maud Humphrey

Baby's Record c. 1898
Size approx. 8-l/4" by 10-3/4"

These charming chromolithographs of babies and very small children in various activities are illustrations by Maud Humphrey (mother of Humphrey Bogart) which were published by Frederick A. Stokes Company, New York, in 1898 as part of the Baby's Record new parents could purchase to record the progress of the new arrival. Especially pleasing are the ones entitled "First Birthday," "First Christmas" and "First Valentine." Although a dozen illustrations were done, many books only contained a random four or five of the group. We are pleased to have eight of the nicest ones on offer here. Each print measures approximately 8-l/4" by 10-3/4"". They are on heavy paper, with no text on the reverse side. One edge may be very uneven where it was detached from the book; but the margins are generous, and this will not affect framing.

Maud Humphrey, who has a following of avid collectors for her children's books and calendars, also did commercial art for Mellins Baby Food and others. Other well-known books include Maud Humphrey's Mother Goose, published New York and London, 1891, and The Bride's Book, with four large chromolithograph color illustrations, published also by Stokes, New York, in 1900.
