Illustrated with line drawings. From the cover: “During his short life Randolph Caldecott became one of the most popular and respected illustrators of his era. Working at the height of Victorian Aestheticism and industrialisation, he turned for inspiration to nature and the stable rural society of eighteenth-century England. His skill lay in translating minutely observed scenes of people, animals and every-day events into drawings and paintings executed with a masterly economy of line and an unsurpassed feeling for colour. He had a rare humour which saw all the folly and vanity of man, yet portrayed them with frankness and love.
