Andrew Varick Stout Anthony
Anthony was the son of Eliza (Stout) and John Anthony. He studied drawing and engraving under the best teachers in New York, and was one of the original members of the American Water Color Society. He passed part of his professional life in New York and California, but settled in Boston in 1878.
His most conspicuous success was achieved as a line engraver. Among his best known works are the illustrations for Whittier's Snow Bound (1867), Ballads of New England (1870), and Mabel Martin (1876); Longfellow's Skeleton in Armor (1877), and Hawthorne's Scarlet Letter (1878). The illustrated edition of Geraldine (a "rhythymic [sic?] romance" written by Alphonso A. Hopkins in 1881) was published in 1887 with illustrations "drawn, engraved, and printed under the supervision of A.V.S. Anthony." It is a particularly interesting edition because the illustrations are not only demonstrative of the themes, but are accurate drawings of sites and features along the St. Lawrence River.
