Book Illustrators

Cooke, Edna - Stories 1922, 6

Illustration by Edna Cooke

The illustrations which accompany many books are often a delight, and in some cases books may be attractive and perhaps collectible more for the illustrator than for anything else.  Sometimes though it is hard to identify the illustrator or to find any information about them.  The notes which appear in the following pages are the results of my own researches.

Please feel free to comment, correct or add to.
