Bibliography

Books and Periodicals (that include illustrations by William Hole).

Every effort is being made to create an authoritative directory but acknowledgement is hereby given that the list is not yet comprehensive, so data errors may inadvertently exist; verification of the information is ongoing so, if you identify any errors, please help by notifying us so we can issue an amendment.

Many of the titles can be viewed online, for free and in their entirety, by clicking on the hyperlinks contained within the tables below.  In some instances, the links may go to a different edition of the book than stated (the dates refer to the year of the first edition containing the illustrations) but for the purpose of viewing William Hole’s artwork, the links are fit for purpose.  Religious artwork has been grouped under a heading of ‘Misc.’ as selections were widely used across a number of different book titles listed; you will find that the definitive works are The Life of Jesus of Nazareth (which contains 80 watercolours) and Old Testament History (which contains 76 watercolours), respectively.
