My Book House Faust

I'm glad to take requests, here and there as I can, and the request came in for more of Donn Crane illustrations—specifically from Goethe's Faust, as retold for children in the My Book House series. These scans are plucked from that particular article that began with a telling of Goethe's life and penchant for fantasy that led to his lifelong work of the full tale of Faust's deal with the devil, and then Crane went on to illustrate the tale itself.

Thanks very much for posting these. I was surprised to learn that the cover paintings for many of the MY BOOK HOUSE SERIES were painted by J. Allen St. John.
Thanks again.
