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,
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.
