Found by Jim Kuhn, who says:
“At a library sale at the University of Akron (Ohio) sometime in the mid-1990s I bought
a stack of a half-dozen or so Burroughs’ works. My favorite of the batch is this one: a lovely
impressionistic oak leaf signed and dated “D Eraacson 1916″ and rendered in pencil and
watercolor on the blank recto of the frontispiece portrait of “John o’ Birds” in a 1908 copy
of Leaf And Tendril.
Over the past decade or so I’ve pulled it off the shelf repeatedly to look at it, show it to friends,
unsuccessfully Google the name of the artist, etc. Happy to be able to share it now more widely!
If anyone knows anything about the artist I’d love to hear more.”
