Linton- Life in the Collections

A.H. Bullen:

81) The Masters of Wood-Engraving. From "The Library", London. Promotion booklet.

n.d. / n. p. (London / Hamden ca. 1889)

The four-page prospectus reproduces a review of Linton’s xylographic anthology by Arthur Henry Bullen, taken from his literary magazine The Library. Bullen describes the content accurately and comes to the conclusion that Linton “writes strongly, but fairly and without harshness, of the faults he finds in late English work, in the French Doré engravings, and in the new departure in America. His strictures should command attention, and will doubtless provoke criticism.”
