Herbert Strang was a pseudonym used by George Herbert Ely and James L’Estrange for their children’s books. The Rackham plate was originally published in the artist's edition of Peter Pan and appears, here, to illustrate an entirely different story. The mailing envelope shows that the volume was sent from New South Wales to Lacepede Bay in South Australia.
This appears to be a particularly rare work. It is not recorded by Hudson or Riall. Copac records copies only at Oxford and Cambridge Universities.
