Linton- Life in the Collections

William Cullen Bryant:

19) The Story of the Fountain. Illustrated with Forty-two Engravings on Wood.

New York 1872

The Story of the Fountain is a production very similar to the preceding illustrated Bryant edition The Song of the Sower, but with an expanded cast of illustrators and engravers. As a consequence, the book lacks the consistency of the former illustrated gift-books of New England poetry. Linton this time engraved only a single plate, the final one.
