Pictures from Bill Nye’s History of England by (as you guessed) Bill Nye, in 1896; my copy is dated 1900 and has a preface that mentions the death of the author.

The cartoons are by W. M. Goodes and A. M. Richards. William M. Goodes was born in Portage County, Ohio, in March 1857, the son of a painter. He became a popular American cartoonist, and died on 15th April 1919.

The book was published in the US before 1923, and, since the creators were American, is in the public domain.
