Darley - Bear Attack
TO: Mark Tomasko - I only JUST discovered your posting today (8-8-06). This is very important information for me. I can send you a photograph via email of this pen and ink drawing to confirm it is the prototype for the bank note. Please contact me!
The drawing you describe matches a bank note engraving I have. In all probability the drawing was done for the bank note company.

Original Pen& Ink - Bear Attack
I own a beautiful original pen & ink drawing approx. 12" x 24" of a black bear holding down one frontiersman (holding a musket) over a campfire facing- off/sarling at a stanidng frontiersman with knife raised. Also 3 hounds are attacking the bear. Said to be an illustration from a book on Daniel Boone - but I have no proof of this. nevertheless - it is likely an original for a book illustration - sound familiar to anyone? - A.

Trying to research the block I have. To whom would I turn to for info on it and value. Thanks!
I'm seeking information regarding the following:
"The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" illustrated by Darley for the American Art Union (1849/50)
Where might I acquire a copy and it's current pricing.
