The Pictures from Ruth Fielding and the Gypsies

Before we begin, I would like to point out the pictures in this article.

Ruth Fielding and the Gypsies, book cover

There were very few illustrations available for Ruth Fielding and the Gypsies.

The two found were taken from the Internet Archive version of Ruth Fielding and the Gypsies, here.

Cover art, table of contents, and title page for this edition of Ruth Fielding was presumably made by the publisherNew York: Cupples & Leon Co.

The one black and white illustration does not list an illustrator.

I’d like to thank the New York Public Library for making this book and its illustrations available online to the public.
