Harold Copping Vintage 5.25" x 7" Cricket or Baseball Engraving.

Lot 367. Harold Copping Vintage 5.25" x 7" Cricket or Baseball Engraving. A British artist, Copping (1863-1932) is widely recognized for his illustrations of Biblical scenes. His non-religious art was also widely published, in books and periodicals. Copping’s facsimile signature is part of this engraving. It’s likely that the five boys shown are playing a “sandlot” version of cricket, although nothing represents the wicket, which typically is present in Copping’s cricket illustrations. In the early 1900s, Copping visited Canada, but there doesn’t seem to be evidence that he was familiar with American baseball. The engraving is on heavy newsprint from an unidentified, undated magazine or book. The reverse side has children’s poems, including “Little Tom Tucker’ and “A Diller, a Dollar.” The print itself is nm. The paper around it shows edge chips, tears and creases. An interesting display item. Winning Bid $20.
