Notes Print is in excellent condition. Mounted in cream and in what is probably its original mid-twentieth century black and gilt, narrow frame; the frame is solid but has some small surface chips to the raised details and some slight scratches.


An attractive print showing draymen loading barrels outside Jamaica Inn. The print is signed by Philip Youngman Carter. I assume this is a proof for Daphne du Maurier’s novel Jamaica Inn. The artist was the husband of crime novelist Margery Allingham and was a crime writer in his own right producing over 30 short stories. In addition he finished Allingham’s last work after death and wrote two further Albert Campion sequels. As an artist Youngman Carter designed over 200 crime fiction dust jackets for many writers including Alllingham as well as other famous names such as Gladys Mitchell. He also illustrated work for Rebecca West, John Steinbeck, J. B. Priestley, Georgette Heyer and Graham Greene. Youngman Carter was Allingham’s book artist from the first, as he illustrated the jacket for Blackkerchief Dick, published in 1923. The print is mounted and framed. the frame is 12.5" x 14" and the inner section showing the print is 7.5"x 9" .
