Please see attached stock photos of the final book illustration - not included in the listing Signed lower left and dated 1942. Everett Shinn, a future member of the Eight and remarkable, rather theatrical personality was born at Woodstown, New Jersey in 1873.Even more recent sources give 1876 as the year of Everett Shinn's birth Zurier, Snyder, and Mecklenburg, 1995, p. 224 but the artist usually lied about his age to appear younger than he actually was. Edith DeShazo (1974, errata sheet) claimed that information from family members established the date of November 6, 1876 as Shinn's birthday. But if this is true, he would have enrolled at the Spring Garden Institute in Philadelphia to study industrial art at the age of twelve.
