Dear members, I have an 1896 lithograph which has had a rough life; pasted down, discolored, glue residue from previous matting. It’s by William Rothenstein and depicts Walter Crane. On its own, it’s not that valuable an object. The thing that makes this unusual (possibly special) is the hand written dedication and signature. In red at the bottom of the print is “To Grant Richards - WILL R 96”
In doing some research I find that Grant Richards was Rothenstein’s publisher of this series, published in 1898. https://www.npg.org.uk/collections/search/portraitExtended/mw02802/Sir-Francis-Seymour-Haden
My question is, does the historical context (that of an early edition inscribed to the publisher) add value or significance?
I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
Thank you in advance.
