Correction: Mera Sett

Illustration by Mera Sett from Sculptured Memories by Mera Sett, privately printed and published for the author by Grant Richards, 1922, in a limited edition of 500 copies.

Back at the beginning of the year, I posted the covers of a number of book catalogues by Jaqueline Wesley and it's been pointed out to me that I erroneously attributed one of the cover images to Mera Sett. This was a result of confusion caused by the fact that Catalogue number 6 also had a supplement. The original post has now been corrected but, for the record, this is the cover to which I had meant to refer.

Also, for the record, I should say that every time I mention Ms Wesley here, I get a small flurry of 'whatever happened to...' emails. I'm sorry I can't help. I never had any personal contact with the lady myself but if anyone does know of her current disposition I know there are many who would like to think that her disappearance from the world of bookselling was neither an easy and happy retirement so please do lets us know...
