I have received this nice postcard in cover from Poland. Author of Boy From Treasure Island, 1914. John Rea Neill (1877-1943), was a magazine
and children’s book illustrator. John Rea Neill reigned as the Royal
Illustrator of Oz for forty years - 1904 to 1944. In that time he
illustrated 39 of the 40 Oz books most scholars accept as the “canonical
set.” His imaginative and finely crafted pen and ink drawings impressed
a vivid image of the fairyland of Oz on generations of people.
Stamp on cover is Christmas, issued on 16.11.2016.
