[picture: Front Cover, The Lost Boy]

Harpers Magazine commissioned the pictures shown here to accompany a story called “The Lost Boy” in the early 1900s some time. They were painted by N. C. Wyeth. The book I have, “The Lost Boy” by Henry van Dyke, contains black-and-white reproductions of the paintings. You can see the originals if you subscribe to Harper’s Magazine.

I have hand-coloured one of the illustrations very roughly to approximate a faded version of the original painting.

The actual story is religious, and I have not reproduced it.
