R. Caldecott Picture Book No. 2

£32.99

Product description

Undated but R. Caldecott was illustrating books in the mid to nineteenth century and George Routledge was his publisher so it seems likely that this was published at that time or just after.
The book contains: The Three Jovial Huntsmen, The Queen of Hearts, Sing a Song of Sixpence, and The Farmer's Boy 'all exhibited in beautiful engravings, many of which are printed in colour'.
Drawn by R. C. Engraved and printed by E. Evans.

The illustrated cloth boards are grubby and faded but otherwise in pretty good condition for its age. At little bit of wear at corners, edges and top and tail of spine. The cover shows pictures of each of the stories inside. Some browning on the endpapers and a bit of staining on them and the pastedowns. There is no foxing but some grubby fingermarks on some of the back pages. The coloured illustrations look clean and bright (grubby fingermarks on edges of 4 of them).

The binding is firm. Just some cracking halfway up the back hinge.
