Boy's Herald Second Number
Boy's Herald Vol I No. 2 continued The Young Rebels and began Black Adder; or, the Wreckers of the Channel. The serial Black Adder; or, the Wreckers of the Channel was, in reality, James Malcolm Rymer's Sea-Drift, or the Wreckers of the Channel, reprinted from Reynolds's Miscellany, Vol. XXXI No. 799 from way back in October 3, 1863 and illustrated by Frederick Gilbert. Rymer was the creator of Sweeney Todd. the two Charley Lance pages are illustrated by R. Huttula and the Puck drawing was a preface to Volume I. I'm not sure who drew this one.
