I love the cover illustration on this undated hardcover copy of "The Three Bears" from Whitman Publishing Co. (Best guess is that it's from the 1910s or 1920s.) The illustration looks like the tale of Goldilocks, as envisioned by Henry Darger. Or, at least, that's how it seems to my mind.
Margaret Winifred Tarrant. She was a British artist who specialized, according to Wikipedia, "in depictions of fairy-like children and religious subjects." (That also ties her, thematically, to Darger.) Interestingly, in a search of Google images, I found a different book version of "The Three Bears" that features a similar illustration by Tarrant, from a different angle. Goldilocks is even wearing the same dress!
Here are the two covers, side by side:
Inside my book, the longer title of this slender volume is "The Story of the Three Bears and Other Stories." The other stories are The Fairy Shoemaker and The Stories of Billy Possum.
The title page has an inscription that states "To Alta's cousin from Billie H."
