Illustrator: John Batten

John Batten (1860-1932, more at Wikipedia) is one of my favorite book illustrators; he often worked with Joseph Jacobs, who is one of my favorite book authors... and I was excited to find out that he did the illustrations for E. Dixon's Fairy Tales from the Arabian Nights.  There is a mix of full-page illustrations along with some smaller illustrations.

Here's one of his illustrations for the story of Aladdin:


And here's an animated gif of some more full-page illustrations:
