Subject: 	James D. Linton, Illustrator

I am in possession of a copy of "Shakespeare's Comedy of THE MERCHANT OF 
VENICE with illustrations by Sir James D. Linton, P.R.I."  Publisher is 
Hodder & Stoughton, with no publication date.  Inside the cover is 
attached an envelope with handwritten letter from Linton to a 
Brooklynite dated April 6, 1915,

"[sender's address]

Dear Sir

In answer to yours of March 14 . 1915 I have only illustrated two of 
Shakespears plays. [viz.?]  the two you mention "Henry VIII" & the 
"Merchant of Venice" The only other colour book was published by 
[Messrs?] Hodder Stoughton.  The subject "Mary Queen of Scots, the 
landscapes of the book were illustrated by Mr. James Orrock, R.I.  The 
Royal Institute of Painting in Water Colours published a colour print 
[frame?] my picture of "She Stoops to Conquer"
[ ? ]
[ ? ]
James D Linton"

His illustrations are good.  If you have a particular interest in Linton 
I'll e-mail you a scan of the letter.
