Forget-me-nots of the Civil War; A Romance, Containing Reminiscences and Original Letters of Two Confederate Soldiers
I'm raiding an online archive for this and subsequent images. So, they are smaller, and I may not be able to find out who the illustrator is.

This is interesting, because it's a book about television from 1939. Some of you may recognize the name Lowell Thomas, too. Sorry the cover is too big for my scanner, but you get the gist.

My Visioneer scanner turned out to be incompatible with my new computer and its Windows Vista operating system. So I finally decided to replace it, with an HP Scanjet G4010. Here are some vintage postcard reproductions of Alfons Mucha, to inaugurate it. As always, click on the images for a bigger view, since I've scanned them large.

"Don't shoot til they're nigh enough!"
A historical thriller of the old Franco-American Northwest frontier, written in 1900 by Maurice Thompson. The illustrations are by F. C. Yohn
Frontispiece from The Treasure Train, by Arthur B. Reeve. The artist is uncredited, and I can't make out the signature, although it may say "Will Foster". Please leave a comment if you recognize him.
Update: It is Will Foster, I found out, thanks to this nifty signature bank.

Elsewhere on the web, Arthur B. Reeve is credited as having invented the first "scientific" hero of detective novels. I unfortunately can't find any information on who the illustrator of this cover is. If you know, please leave me a comment!
