Visiting the Giessenburg ceremony?

William Albert Stanley Herbert

There’s a man of this name, going by ‘W.A.S.Herbert’ or ‘WASH’, who wrote a couple of books on cartooning and caricature which were published by Sir Isaac Pitman and Sons Ltd. in London.

Here’s one of them…

Is this the same man as the one in George Racine Herbert’s tree, the tax inspector who had retired by the time of his wife Olive’s probate?
