The database shows George Wilde an illustrator now credited with three titles dated 1958 to 1960. All evidently U.S. books, probably for young children.

George A. Wilde

George A. Wilde is one strong candidate. As of 2016-03-16 the Library of Congress has 15 catalog records of books by that George Wilde: 6 dated 1951 to 1959 that credit illustrators George and Irma or Irma and George Wilde; 9 dated 1961 to 1970 that credit illustrator George Wilde. Titles suggest that all are for elementary school children, or picture books for with a partly younger audience.

Only the earliest credits George Wilde as a writer: The Puppy Who Found a Boy (Wonder Books, (c)1951), unpaged; "story and pictures by George and Irma Wilde".

The database titles credited to illustrator George Wilde are longer than those LC catalogue records/books for George A. Wilde. Two are much longer: T[1] First Boy on the Moon (Winston, 1959), "a junior science fiction novel", and T[2] All About Satellites and Space Ships (Random House, 1958, revised 1962); LCCN: 58-9014 and 62-7167.

More than 30 LC records credit Irma Wilde, commonly as both writer and illustrator, perhaps always for young children, probably first published 1950 to 1968.
