A Cruise

A Cruise under the Crescent is another Rand McNally title using a W. W. Denslow cover design. This time however, Denslow also illustrated the book. It's filled with sketches of eastern scenes to help flesh out the author's story of his travels.

There is one illustration in particular that I find amusing.
Here we have an illustration of a Sword Dancer of Jericho. I have to say, it's very similar to the drawing of Annie Waters, done for Father Goose, His Book - although a little more risqué!
