" Dumpy Proverbs "

My quest for beautiful old illustrations continues with these from "Dumpy Proverbs" by Honor C. Appleton. The book was published in 1903 in London by Grant Richards of 48 Leicester Square and printed by Sir Joseph Causton and Sons. The book has no text other than the proverbs printed on pages facing the illustrations.

All these and other proverb illustrations can be found in my new store IllustrationStore.
