another new finding, perhaps!


Oh, hello Vetch, I'm very glad you enjoyed the Green Sheaf images.

Today I received a rather dirty softback book titled "HENRY IRVING" written by Christopher St. John, publsihed by the Green Sheaf, London, 1905. Yes, it's one of rare titles from PCS's short lived publishing project.

I believe the front piece is the work of PCS, though we cannot recognize her usual PCS sigunature. I'd like to hear your views, friends.

and furthere images for references. The portrait of Irving is by Bastien Lepage.

The book has a ex-libris saying "Eric Jones-Evans". Google work tells me he is a British playwright. Interesting.
