Rainbow Gold – Poems Old and New Selected for Boys and Girls – Illustrated by Dugald Stewart Walker

He is perhaps best known for his contributions to Fairy Tales from Hans Christian Andersen (1914), but also illustrated books such as The Boy who Knew what the Birds Said and Dream Boats and Other Stories.
