Additional Details

Bains (1877-1959) was an illustrator active for just 10 years during the Golden Age of Illustration. She studied under Howard Pyle and received her first commissions from St. Nicholas Magazine, Collier's, and McClure's before becoming known for her work with children's books. This is a rare, later work, as she only occasionally continued to illustrate after 1909.
