Wallet of Kai Lung Cover Art


Original Cover Art Inscription


Original Preliminary Cover Art for The Wallet of Kai Lung

Author: Ernest Bramah

Book published in 1900 by Grant Richards, London.


Original sketch (pen-and-ink?) with yellow paint. The picture has the initials "BD" in the lower-right corner.  Handwritten in pencil outside of the picture is "Sketch for Cover Design D. <illegible> Duncan." It might be "Robert", which would make BD Bob Duncan. I've included a close-up of the inscription for your bemusement. I'd appreciate any info about this. (Vertical line near the right edge caused by composite scan.)
