This piece was illustrated by Goble, Warwick. Artist signature in print - bottom right of image.
Warwick Goble (1862-1943) was an illustrator known for creating childrenÕs books with Japanese and Indian themes. Goble often contributed half-tone illustrations to Strand Magazine, PearsonÕs Magazine, and The BoyÕs Own Paper in the late 19th century. In 1893, Goble exhibited at the Royal Academy and began illustrating books a few years thereafter. Interestingly, Goble was the first to illustrate H. G. WellsÕ The War of the Worlds, and became a resident gift book illustrator for MacMillan in 1909. Goble was a master of watercolor and appeared to be in his element when depicting Asian landscapes and portraits. Though Goble never became a household name, he had an extensive amount of background, and was perfectly suited to illustrate the childrenÕs books of the early 20th century.
