Nice Find: The Children’s Picture Gallery

Found another fantastic vintage book!  This one dates from 1904 and is full of great animal illustrations.  The condition isn’t perfect, the pages are detached from the hard cover and there are some small tears but the book contains over 100 colour and black & white pictures, most of which remain unharmed.  Really pleased with this little find, published by Ernest Nister, the artists include Harry Rountree, F Reason, Helena Maguire and the legendary Louis Wain…  Here are a few of the pages.
