The Holiday, by Mary R Bassett

Mary R. Bassett was a late 19th and early 20th century illustrator of magazines and children's books.[1][page needed]


Mary Robertson Bassett[2] illustrated magazines such as Ladies' Home Journal,[3] and children's books published by P. F. Volland Company, Baker & Taylor Company,[4][5] Grosset & Dunlap, and other publishers.

Reviewers noted that her work was "unusually attractive",[6], "charming",[7] "beautifully illustrated",[8] and "not only skilfully made, but also show a most appreciate feeling for the contents of the book."[9] School and Home Education wrote of her work in Fairy Operettas (1916), "The imagination of the reader is agreeably stimulated by the illustrations from the pens and brushes of Mary Robertson Bassett."[10]

Her illustrations are sold at auction.[11]
