Overview

Charles Buckels Falls (1874 - 1960) was a noted muralist and creator of posters and prints as well as the illustrator of a number of children's books. This book is part of a series used in the early part of the 20th Century to teach children to read and write. The full color illustrations are just great!

* This e-book is a true representation, hand-transcribed from a high-definition scan of a pre-1923 print version of the book. Unlike other e-copies of the book, it was not produced by using Optical Character Recognizion (OCR). OCR-scanning old books is seldom, if ever, error-free. This often results in an e-book with many **, ^^, >> and typographic errors when OCR can't read the word or punctuation correctly.

* "True representation" means that if the print version has any inscriptions or previous owner's name in the front of the book, this e-book might as well. Blank pages that often separate chapters might also be left in. And pages that may have a folded corner or other, similar damage might be included, too.

* In other words, no changes or as few as possible have been made to either illustrations or text in order to bring you an e-book that is as close to the original as possible.

Meet the Author

Charles Buckles (sometimes mis-spelled Buckels) Falls (1874 - 1960) wrote and created the illustrations in the ABC Book. He also illustrated books of other authors, mainly for children, and designed posters, advertisements, invitations, book bindings, stage sets, fabric and furniture in a career that spanned from the late 1890s through 1960. He produced some of his best-known work for the Victory book campaigns of the Division of Pictorial Publicity during World War I. Falls executed much of his work for paying clients, including Masonic publications such as The Shrine Magazine and The New York Masonic Outlook. In 1927 editors at The New York Masonic Outlook described Falls as “one of the distinguished artists of the day.”

It is believed that Falls made nine paintings for The Shrine Magazine. At least five of the paintings eventually graced the cover of the publication, all in 1927. This February cover and Falls’ related painting offer an opportunity to compare the artist’s original artwork against the magazine that arrived in subscribers’ mailboxes.

Editors shaped “The Shrine Magazine,” published from May 1926 to December 1928, to appeal to not only to male Shrine members, but also to their families with attractive covers, short fiction, a women’s department and general interest articles. To capture readers' attention, editors hired several popular illustrators, such as Falls, to create artistic covers for the magazine. Their cover art did not often relate to stories or articles in the magazine, nor were these artists necessarily associated with Freemasonry. Falls, for example, does not appear to have been a member.
