Illustrations from publications for children

Series comprises sheets of illustrations clipped chiefly from early-20th-century children’s books and magazines and from material intended for children or picturing children in periodicals such as Collier’s, Country life and The delineator. The illustrations accompany fairy tales and children’s stories, depict children at play, or portray animals. Series consists of the work of 62 identified artists, including Frank Adams, Frank Godwin, George Vernon Stokes, Jessie Willcox Smith and Blanche Fisher Wright. Illustrations are also taken from The child’s natural history (Boston : DeWolf Fiske, [190-?]) with pictures by unidentified artists, and Favourite animals (London : Dean & Son, [1905?]) with pictures by Stanley Berkeley (1855–1909) and other artists not named. Illustrations by Jessie Willcox Smith include 3 magazine covers with images of children from Good housekeeping, Jan. 1918 and Jan. 1919, and The ladies’ home journal, Nov. 1912.
The number of items per illustrator extends from a single sheet in the case of 25 of the artists to the more numerous illustrations (47) by Frank Adams. Many sheets are illustrated on both sides. The earliest illustrations are probably those by Thomas Landseer from the 1880s and the latest by Frank Godwin (1925).
