Excerpt

This book is the outcome of a suggestion, made to me twenty-five or thirty years ago by the late Charles F. Chichester of the original Century Company, that I should do a volume for them, containing some of my drawings which had appeared in their Magazine with notes by myself. The result is far different, and I hope far better, than the first scheme, and the book is due to Mr. Alfred R. McIntyre of Messrs. Little, Brown and Company, who have carried it out, and Dr. R. U. Johnson, who suggested it to them, though in the meantime chapters had been printed and a number of publishers had asked for the Volume.

SCARCE any of the artists, engravers, authors, editors and printers with whom I worked are alive in this country, and few of those with whom I was associated in Europe. But there are several persons whom I must specially thank for their aid: Mrs. A. W. Drake, Mr. John F. Braun, Mr. H. Devitt Welsh and Messrs. Frederick Keppel and Company in this country, and Mr. T. Fisher Unwin, Sir Frederick and Lady Macmillan in England. I have acknowledged the source and permission to use the drawings either in the text or List of Illustrations. But I most sincerely thank the artists, authors, editors and publishers who have helped me. Once again Mrs. Pennell has read my proofs and, more than this, she has gone over them again and again with me.

THE books Mrs. Pennell and I have written and illustrated, and our adventures in making them, are not here described, because they have already been published.
