"The Sea Witch" illustrations by Gordon Grant

Alexander Laing.  The Sea Witch.  New Edition, Illustrated by Gordon Grant.  Murray Hill Books, Inc., 1944.

Gordon Grant (1875 to 1962) began his career as an artist/reporter in the days before photography.  He was fascinated with ships and they featured prominently in his artwork.  He successfully campaigned to preserve the U.S.S. Constitution, and his painting of this warship now hangs in the Oval Office in the White House.
