Ruth Mary Hallock 1928 American School Reader Book Illustrations

   Ruth Mary Hallock was one of the many  illustrators of  the beloved  Child’s Garden of Verses  by Robert Louis Stevenson. I can’t find out very much about her except that she she lived from 1876-1945, she illustrated children’s book for over fifty years, and one of her earliest works was “Little Rhymes for Little Readers” , published in 1903. I found a very worn 1928 American school reader book and scanned these lovely and charming illustrations. If you click on one of these images you will be directed to my etsy shop where I have these and many beautiful old illustrations to offer you.

About redbudart

I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, just outside of Portland, Oregon. My passions are cuisine, wine, horticulture, art, and my two grown children who couldn't be farther away, and couldn't be any more wonderful than they are. I moved here in 2014, work a day job in finance, and spend the rest of my time working on my dream of living off the land, and teaching young people how to as well. Stop by my Etsy shops, where all proceeds are going towards the goal. Thank you and Namaste!
