The blog has been quiet for a long time, as I have been very busy and had to keep up with the daily publication of Edward Lear’s diaries. However, I have at last found time to add an article on Peter Newell to the nonsenselit.org bookshelf:
- Hearn, Michael Patrick. “Peter Newell, American Comic Illustrator.” American Book Collector 4.4 (July-August 1983): 2-11.
As a bonus I am adding a set of 10 postcards from the Detroit Publishing Co. “Artist Series” from Peter Newell’s Pictures and Rhymes (1899). The seller on eBay dated them circa 1905, I only downloaded the images, so the quality is not good.
