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 usual interests are cooking, wine, horticulture, art, and old books, but lately I've been obsessed with saving for a piece of land, so I can practice sustainability and learn to live as close to the land as possible, and then help others to do the same. To relax I listen to Dharma talks. Namaste!
