John F. Campbell (1885-1966) - Illustrator - Campbell's original watercolour on card illustration from Commander Edward Hamilton Currey's book ' Ian Hardy - Fighting The Moors ', the piece titled 'The Death Of Salim.' The illustration can be viewed on page 318 of the book (an original first edition copy is included with the auction). Framed and glazed, total size 38cm x 30cm.

Included alongside the painting is a folder of related ephemera regarding the publication, including letters from the Publisher to the Author, several handwritten letters from Currey (the author) to the publishers, letters from the Publisher to the illustrator and so forth. Interestingly the book appears to have been written during the First World War with many letters dated within the wartime period. Currey himself was a respected Royal Navy Commander and his history has been logged by the vendor within the folder. Also included is a draft copy of the illustration, with publisher's amendments noted in pencil. The folder of documents has been neatly presented and researched by the vendor. A late 19th / early 20th Century Middle-Eastern Jambiya ceremonial dagger is also included, and is presumed to have been the property of Currey - the scabbard and hilt profusely decorated in silver coloured white metal. Total length; 32cm. A unique collection.
