I too love his book illustrations. Walter King Stone is also resposible for the front cover design of The Log of the Sun by Walter C. Beebe, published by Henry Holt and Company in 1906. (His monogram, at the lower right corner, is in the block.) His 52 full-page illustrations in a variety of colored inks and tones are outstanding.

What lovely work. I hadn't heard of Stone before. If his work was primarily reproduced in magazines, this is one more reason to encourage libraries not to pulp their old periodicals. Thank you so much.
