Title: James Branch Cabell by Frank C. Papé
Creator: Papé, Frank Cheyne
Date: 1930
Description: Frank Cheyne Papé (1872-1972) illustrated seven of Cabell's books. The English illustrator's fanciful, imaginatie and sometimes sexually suggestive style complemented Cabell's satirical works. Papé became an overnight success with the publication of the illustrated limited edition of Jurgen in 1921. Papé illustrated many of Anatole France's works, the complete works of Francois Rabelais, and editions of John Bunyan, Nathaniel Hawthornes, William Shakespeare, and Homer.
