Before moving on, I wanted to check out the illustrator of Aladore, “Lady Hylton.”
Okay, I am American. If you pay attention to those things, you may have noticed I don’t bother with the ridiculous special titles for Henry. Peerage, bleh…
So it is hard to trace correct Lady Hylton. The lady who illustrated Aladore was Alice Adeliza [Hervey] Jolliffe Hylton. I couldn’t find much about her, other than a genealogical listing on a Peerage website.
However, she did work with Newbolt on one other book:
The book of cupid: Being an Anthology from the English poets, with 23 illustrations by Lady Hylton and introduction by Henry Newbolt (London: Constable & Co. 1909)
There are no digital copies available that I could find–you might get a copy from Rare Books and Special Collections somewhere…
So she is not well known as far as I can tell!
