Edgar Burke (1889-1950),  "Canada Geese", Colored

Lot 0183 Details

Description
Edgar Burke (1889-1950), "Canada Geese", artist signed LL, ed 122/250, Copyright 1941 Derrydale Press, plate: 18.75 x 15.5", paper: 26 x 20"

Edgar Burke, MD successfully combined the vocation of medicine (he was a member of the American College of Physicians and Surgeons) and the avocation of sport. He was an enthusiastic wildfowler and upland gunner, an expert angler and fly tier (he designed the flies "Doctor Burke" and "Family Secret") and was interested in pigeon racing and cock fighting (it was he, in the Jersey City cock-fights of the 1930s, who sewed up the wounds of the injured birds). He was also a celebrated sporting artist, illustrating two Derrydale Press classics, Feathered Game (1929) and Upland Game Bird Shooting in America (1930), and producing front cover vignettes for seven more, including Grouse Feathers and De Shootinest Gent'man. He was, notes Siegel, a childhood companion and lifetime friend of Derrydale proprietor Eugene Connett - a relationship that paid large dividends for readers of the Press and of Connett's later works, to which Burke contributed illustrations or text. Burke he wrote and illustrated the chapter on decoy making in Duck Shooting along the Atlantic Tidewater (1948).
