H. M. Brock (1875-1960)

The London Reader was launched by George Stiff on May 18, 1863 and ran to 2088 numbers until May 9, 1903. Stiff died in 1874 and I'm not sure who took over as proprietor. These illustrations from an 1899 serial “Brown as a Berry,” caught my eye both for quality and for the signature, H. M. B. This was a very famous book illustrator, Henry Matthew Brock (1875-1960).
