It is a pleasure to access one's e-mail and find a message from somewhere in the world that adds to the body of knowledge (known to the webmaster at least) about Thomas M. M. Hemy & his works. A pleasure therefore to receive a kind message from Rosemary Pearson of 'Lincoln Joyce Fine Art' of 40 Church Road, Great Bookham, Surrey, England, whose website is here. With all of the data that today appears on this page. Rosemary, we sincerely thank you!
Firstly I can now present 'Landed' which originates from 'Boys Own Paper' of Jun. 2, 1894 (page 553, BOP Annual Vol. XVI) - rather reduced in size from what Rosemary provided, to make it fit both your screen & mine. I think (image of the signature area at left) that it is dated 1894, but you be the judge!
Hemy wrote like he was a doctor writing a prescription! Under the image it read:
'Landed. by THOMAS M HEMY. (From the Picture exhibited at the Royal Institute, 1893-4)'
It looks like the puppy made it! Looks like a Labrador Retriever. Like the webmaster's 'inherited' friend & companion named 'Nike'.
A MESSENGER OF DELIVERANCE (1894?) & SHOREWARD BOUND (1894?)
It would seem that 'A Message of Deliverance' (1894?) & 'Shoreward Bound' (also 1894?), are related. Or at least they look as though they are. The first originated from 'Boys Own Paper' of Aug. 25, 1894 & the second from the Sep. 1, 1894 issue. Both then appeared in the 'Boy's Own Paper' Annual (Volume XVI re 1894/1895). And both images are below. The covers of the two issues are at left.
It did seem that there was a related article, entitled 'The Strange Adventure of a Small Boy', as you can see at left.
But Rosemary Pearson advises me that it does not relate in any way to the image beside it. Rather the article relates to Latin Grammar! And would not surely relate to the interests of any small boy of today!
But the two images do seem to relate, nonetheless. Exactly why they do is yet to be determined!
A MESSENGER OF DELIVERANCE (1894?)
So 'A Message of Deliverance' from 'Boys Own Paper' of Aug. 25, 1894 (issue # 815, page 737, BOP Annual Vol. XVI). Again rather reduced in size from what Rosemary provided. It was on the cover page of that issue. The words under the print state that the drawing is:
"1. A Message of Deliverance" (Drawn for the "Boy's Own Paper" by Thomas M. Hemy") It would seem that it was not dated.
SHOREWARD BOUND (1894?)
And here is 'Shoreward Bound' from 'Boys Own Paper' of Sep. 1, 1894 (issue # 816, page 753, BOP Annual Vol. XVI). As for the other images, it is reduced in size for presentation on this page without scrolling. Under the work it read:
'2. Shoreward Bound. (Drawn for the "Boy's Own Paper" by THOMAS M HEMY.)'
