"The Blue Belt"

The Lad in the Bear's skin and the King of Arabia's Daughter

Illustration by Kay Nielsen



This illustration bears close similarities to one produced in East of the Sun and West of the Moon (1914) - in this case, the

illustration associated with the following text from 'The Blue Belt':

The Lad in the Bear's skin and the King of Arabia's Daughter.

Difference in detail and colour, however, indicate that the illustration may be an advanced variant upon which the final

published image was based.
