Notes:Cover and half-title: Afternoon tea / by J.G. Sowerby and H.H. Emmerson. According to Sowerby's daughter Amy Millicent (Illustrators of children's books (Boston, 1947), p. 362)) he was "engaged in writing and illustrating books for children" in the 1880s, and so may have been at least joint and perhaps sole author of the verses.
