Scope and Content

Cover design and 47 original black & white pen and ink illustrations for M.E. Atkinson's book. The illustrations are all on cartridge paper surface-mounted on board, often with several mounted on one board, and Jones appears to have originally arranged the illustrations according to whether they are headpieces, tailpieces or full-page illustrations. However, many of the boards have been cut up to allow for the display mounting of individual illustrations. Five of the illustrations have been mounted for display, possibly for exhibition or sale at some point after the book was first printed. The illustrations have been numbered with the relevant chapter number, and in many cases the relevant page number as well. The contents of this file do not constitute a complete suite of illustrations for the book.
