A perfect gift for the French Literature graduate/student/professor, this lovely vintage print has a je ne sais quoi factor that only a French print can bring. With both men and women authors, this chart's portraits are each numbered and below the print is text that indicates each author's name ..... everyone from Francois Rabelais, Honore de Balzac to Marcel Proust.
In perfectly pristine condition with sharp edges and corners and not a ding or mark to mar the surface, this paper was carefully salvaged from a basket case copy of a 1950's reference source. It has a satin like finish that adds to its attraction.
The paper measures 8 x 11 inches (approximate) and is blank on the reverse side. The third image shows how the print would look framed. A frame is not included in your purchase. We leave the finished product to you. But we might suggest a simple black frame with a nice white mat to add to the black and white contrast.

This is a photograph of a close-up of a specimen of Luther Burbank's famous thornless cactus, 1912. This image was salvaged from an encyclopedia edited by F. E. Wright. The thornless cactus was invented to serve as food for livestock in the desert. Burbank later wrote that he would never have attempted this ? most arduous and soul-testing experience that I have ever undergone.? It was a torment to find little cactus spines imbedded in his skin and permanently lodged in his clothing. Burbank finally succeeded and produced a plant that grew only rudimentary spines and then dropped them voluntarily. His dream of the thornless cactus was never realized.
The paper measures 5 x 7.25 inches and is blank on the reverse side. The paper is in excellent condition. Ready to frame.
Thornless Cactus will be mailed to you in a non-bendable mailer, carefully housed in an acid free archival sleeve by First Class Mail.

Charles William Jefferys ( 1869 ?1951) was a Canadian painter, illustrator, author, and teacher best known for his historical illustrations. From 1889 to 1892 he worked for the Toronto Globe as an illustrator and artist. From 1893 to 1901, he worked for the New York Herald. Returning to Toronto, he became a magazine and book illustrator. He co-founded the Graphic Arts Club (later named the Canadian Society of Graphic Art), which by the 1940s became the primary artists' group in Canada. As well, from 1912 to 1939 he taught painting and drawing in the Department of Architecture at the University of Toronto.
Jefferys had an intense interest in history and his reputation rests principally on his accurate and meticulous portrayal of early Canadian life.
A plaque in his honour quotes him, "If my work has stirred any interest in our country and its past, I am more than paid."
C. W. Jefferys Collegiate Institute, a public high school in Toronto, is named in his honour.
