Howard Pyle's "Pepper and Salt"

Howard Pyle's Pepper and Salt: or, Season For Young Folk was first published in 1885. The book contained eight stories written and illustrated by Pyle. It also contained 24 illustrated poems. All of the illustrated poems are featured below. Please click on them for a larger view. These drawings are wonderfully detailed and whimsical, showing a different side of Pyle from his more action and costume oriented painting of pirates and historical scenes.

Thanks for posting these. It's too bad that the Project Gutenberg e-books don't preserve the illustrations like this.
