From the publisher:
MEAD SCHAEFFER was one of the foremost illustrators of the romantic era of American fiction. He worked for decades producing atmospheric and evocative illustrations for the top books and magazines of the day, and his romantic, swashbuckling, and theatrical paintings ultimately earned him a spot in the Society of Illustrators Hall of Fame. This new book presents a stunning overview of Schaeffer's long and illustrious career, featuring scores of illustrations reproduced directly from original paintings as well as rare tear sheets and photographs.
