Post updated with more identifications. Thanks to all the commenters making suggestions.
- Kindle definition & tree. Presumably commissioned by Amazon?
- I’m guessing that the Finches are probably from Audubon’s The Birds Of America but I can’t find the actual image elsewhere online.
- Virginia Woolf. From a photograph by George Charles Beresford.
- Jules Verne. I can find similar images online, but not credited to the photographer.
- First page of John’s Gospel from the Lindisfarne Gospel.
- Jane Austen. As with Verne, above, I can find similar images online but with no accreditation.
- Ralph Ellison. Unknown source.
- Harriet Beecher Stowe. Unknown source.
- Emily Dickinson. Again, I can find similar pictures…
- Opiuchus and Serpens from Atlas Coelestis by John Flamsteed (1646-1716). Presumably the Kindle authors used a colourised version.
- Johannes and Elisabetha Hevelius using a sextant to collaborate on astronomical research from The Heavenly Machine by Johannes Hevelius
- Mark Twain. Unknown source.
I have absolutely no idea about this one…As pointed out by Paul and Miriam, this is The Samian Sibyl after Guernico.
- The Fish look to me like it could be from Ernst Haeckel’s Kunstformen der Natur but like Audubon’s Finches I can’t find the exact image online. Correction: as Sasha points out in the comments, it’s from Le Larousse du XXe siècle.
- John Steinbeck. Again, I can find similar images but don’t know who they’re by.
- Erasmus of Rotterdam by Hans Holbein, 1523
- St Jerome in his Study by Albrecht Durer.
- Albert of Mainz by Albrecht Durer.
- Charlotte Brontë. Painted by Evert A. Duyckinick, based on a drawing by George Richmond. See wikipedia.
- Palladio’s plan of Villa La Rotonda, in I Quattro Libri dell’Architettura 1570. See the wikipedia entry for the building.
- Agatha Christie. Again, I can find similar, but uncredited, images online.
- Alexandre Dumas. Unknown source.
- “We’d love to hear your thoughts…”
Unknown source.As noted in the comments by Lucy B, and supported by Noel this looks very much likeis a Grant Calculating Machine. See here for a very similar image.See this image on wikipedia.
Any help identifying the remaining images will be most gratefully received.
