Ralph Fletcher Seymour etching, Bookplate for Nancy Lincoln Binner, Circa 1895. Proof for an etched bookplate for Nancy Lincoln Binner. "One gift the Fairies gave me, the love of books; the Golden Key that opens the Enchanted Door." Nancy Lincoln Binner - Her Book - Taken from the poem by Andrew Lance, "Ballade of the Bookworm." 1888. "Far in the Past I peer, and see; A Child upon the Nursery floor, A Child with books upon his knee, Who asks, like Oliver, for more! The number of his years is IV, And yet in Letters hath he skill, How deep he dives in Fairy-lore! The Books I loved, I love them still! One gift the Fairies gave me: (Three; They commonly bestowed of yore); The Love of Books, the Golden Key; That opens the Enchanted Door; Behind it Bluebeard lurks, and o'er; And o'er doth Jack his Giants kill, And there is all Aladdin's store,– The Books I loved, I love them still! Take all, but leave my Books to me! These heavy creels of old we bore; We fill not now, nor wander free, Nor wear the heart that once we wore; Not now each River seems to pour; His waters from the Muses' hill; Though something's gone from stream and shore, The Books I loved, I love them still! Pulled from an etched copper plate, red ink. Etched in plate, lower right corner: "Ralph Fletcher Seymour." Etching: 3.75 x 5.5. Paper: 7 x 9.

Ralph Fletcher Seymour etching, La Poterne #2, possibly 1913. About 55 miles Southeast of the heart of Paris, there is a small bridge, the Rue du Pont that crosses the Loing. On the west end of the bridge you pass through an arched portal at the base of a tower. It looks very similar to this print, but not exact. On the North side of this arch is a restaurant called the La Poterne, at Moret-Loing-et-Orvanne, (France). On the North side of the restaurant is another smaller arch that matches this print. The sign today marks it as the "Le Pre Margaron." The Library of Congress houses a print attributed to Ralph Fletcher Seymour, but signed Hubbard Fund (possibly owner of print?), 1920s. It is a view from the opposite side of the arch. Ralph Fletcher Seymour was on the staff of the Art Institute of Chicago between 1907 and 1918. While there, he was given a year’s paid sabbatical to study art in France. His twelve-month leave began in the summer or early fall of 1912 and ended around September or early October 20, 1913. The Caxtonian, May 2011, page 9. Pulled from an etched copper plate. Under left corner of etching, signed in pencil: "Ralph Fletcher Seymour." Under right corner of etching, signed in pencil: "La Poterne #2." Hand written in the bottom left corner by Seymour: "La Poterne #2." Just up from... Continue... 0120.18.0817

Ralph Fletcher Seymour etching "Old Frankfort" 1928. On February 5, 1928, The Chicago Daily Tribune announced: "The Chicago Society of Etchers opened their annual exhibition last week in the print rooms of the Art institute. It is a keen shame that more space Is not allotted to this exhibit. There are 323 etchings hung this year, and another 300 equally good had to be refused. Possibly it may be arranged that the society shall have all the galleries of the print department for this yearly affair. Upstairs, It is true, the Chicago artists have the entire cast wing for their work.... The current show is exceptionally good. The average is so high it is difficult to find peaks. The most satisfactory way, perhaps, is to select the ten which please you the most and dub them your peaks. I tried that, a little, and had for one result this list of etchings which should not be missed; "Eagle," by H. Emerson Tuttle; " Grand Mosque, Kalronan," by Louis C. Rosenberg; " Log Team," by George Soper; " Corn Stubble," by. Lee Sturges; " Comrades All," by George Rosier; " Dancing on Hampstead Heath," by Laura Knight; "Sand Dunes," by Sears Gallagher; "La Mangla, Siena," by John Taylor Arms; "Angker Bayou at Sunset," by Lucille Douglass; " Pig Market," by Pop Hart; "Black Brig," by W.
