The Water Babies

The Water Babies is a book which has some long held resonances for me, it is also a book which people collect in its various editions and, more importantly, with its various illustrators. So if I see a copy in decent nick for a decent price I like to pick it up. At the same place in which I found the William Scott illustrated Soldiers' Verses - currently on Ebay - I also found the copy of The Water Babies from which these sample illustrations are scanned by A. E. Jackson.

Thank you for sharing those illustrations. They're fantastic! And for once Tom isn't pictured as a newborn but as a fine young boy...
