Thank you so much! I've just spent an hour going through the images, and I've only scratched the surface. I've also discovered some very interesting illustrators that I didn't know about before - Alberto Sangorski , for example, who, it turns out, also illuminated a famous English language version of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam that was lost on the Titanic (gratuitous description below*).

*"one early copy was bound in green levant morocco with sunken panels, elaborate giltwork, thousands of pieces of leather inlay, and 1050 gems, including rubies, garnets and topaz; the lower front cover was decorated with an image of a mandolin created with inlays of mahogany, satinwood, ebony and ivory."
