Cecil G. Trew (1897-1958). Bob Forrest. Manchester : [Bob Forrest], 2017. 13 pages, 10 pages of plates : illustrations (some colour) ; 30 cm.
Rubaiyat Artists No. 2

Online available in the Notes and Queries Index

A look at the life and work of the artist and book illustrator Cecil G. Trew – not a man, and not a pseudonym – whose illustrations of The Rubaiyat, The Book of Job and Benjamin Franklin’s Choosing a Mistress, all done in Los Angeles in the 1920s, contrast markedly with her later works, done back in England, and for which she is better known.
