For particulars refer to: Frank Jewett Mather Jr., "Winslow Homer as a Book Illustrator" in the Princeton University Library Chronicle I, 1 (November, 1939) pp. 15-32 [full text] . The article briefly describes the 75 books for which Homer provided illustrations. Most are in the Princeton Library, gifts of Mr. Mather, and when not, a private collection is named in which the volume can be found.
