McCay/Bangs

In 1904 Winsor McCay had an illustrative collaboration with humorist John Kendrick Bangs whose "House-Boat on the Styx” (featuring the shade of Sherlock Holmes) was a best-seller in 1895. Others who illustrated these series were Wallace Morgan, artist on “Fluffy Ruffles,” and an unknown whose signature was Reese. Bangs wrote “Mrs. Raffles; being the adventures of an amateur crackswoman,” and was a friend of Conan Doyle. Other Bangs illustrator’s were Peter Newell and Lyonel Feininger.
