§ Thomas Douglas James Cleverdon (17 January 1903 – 1 October 1987)[1] was an English radio producer and bookseller. In both fields he was associated with numerous leading cultural figures. This small assemblage (at random it would seem) includes several propsectuses for books published or distributed by Cleverdon as well as a 6-pp. ALS by Eileen Mayo to Cleverdon about illustrating books.

Dame Eileen Rosemary Mayo DBE (11 September 1906 – 4 January 1994) was an English artist and designer who worked in England, Australia and New Zealand in almost every available medium – drawings, woodcuts, lithographs on stone and tempera, tapestry and silk screening. In addition to being a printmaker, illustrator, calligrapher and muralist, she designed coins, stamps, tapestry and posters, and wrote and illustrated eight books on natural science. Item #124860
