Frank Gibson and Campbell Dodgson, Charles Conder: his life and work, London, 1914, 21 (illus.). NOTE: This set, drawn in 1904, was published in 1906 by Messrs. Ernest Brown & Phillips without a printed wrapper, title, or list of subjects…. Fifty copies were issued, all printed in red, and signed and numbered in pencil….. There is no coherent motive running through the whole set, and the general title, which is of recent invention, is not applicable to all the subjects…. in the eighth [A pastoral fantasy] we are introduced to an equally unreal Arcady of 1830.
