Who is the Artist? Illustrations from Nell in Bridewell (Lenchen im Zuchthause) | (Society of British Bibliophiles, Paris, 1900, The illustrations were issued separately to the book. Carrington, references them as by German Artists familiar with the costumes and customs of the time. I wonder if they were originally illustrations for the first German edition, but I cannot find a copy to reference. Any ideas please complete a contact sheet.
