About this Item

10 cm. [miniature] [24] pp. Delightful color wood-engraved illus. on every page; split rear inner hinge. Original glazed pictorial boards with cloth spine, preserved in a later elaborate gilt-stamped green morocco slipcase made by Sangorski & Sutcliffe of London for J. W. Robinson Co.; slipcase corner a bit chipped. Very good. Scare. The charming little pocket-sized "almanacks" by one of British children's leading book illustrators Kate Greenaway were issued between 1883 and 1895. Greenaway's scenes of beautifully-dressed children frolicking in the countryside were popular during the late Victorian period. Printed and designed by Edmund Evans, one of the finest British engravers and color printers of the 19th century. "The beginning of 1883 had seen the publication of Kate Greenaway's first Almanack. Published at one shilling by George Routledge & Sons, and of course engraved and printed in colours by Mr. Edmund Evans, it achieved an enormous success. . ." â" Marion H. Spielmann & George S. Layard, Life and Work of Kate Greenaway, (1905), p. 122. Bookseller Inventory # LV1872
