    These seven illustrations were taken from the 1902 edition of Oldfield (A Kentucky Tale of the Last Century) by Nancy Huston Banks. The story centers on romance and innocence in a rural Kentucky town, as well as on tragedy and mystery surrounding several figures. The author even touches on the Kentucky attitude on the taking of a human life. These illustrations show a variety of relationships of love or conflict. Each page measures 7.5" high by 5" wide; each image 6.25" high by 3.5" wide. Originally created as watercolors, they are in a palette of pastel pinks, blues, yellows and greens. The illustrator is unknown. All are in good condition with light stains on small edge tears.
