272 pp, 11 1/4" H. 252 illustrations, including 93 plates in full color. "Emphasizing the Victorian age in England and its subsequent tradition in America, this magical survey features now-classic illustrations by Edward Lear, John Tenniel, Walter Crane, Randolph Caldecott, Kate Greenaway, Beatrix Potter, Ernest Shepard, Arthur Rackham, Edmund Dulac, Kay Nielsen, Howard Pyle, N.C. Wyeth and W.W. Denslow. The author brings to this subject a deep understanding of illustration, and explains, for instance, how Walter Crane, Kate Greenaway, and Randolph Caldecott were identified by their association with the same printer. She describes the fascinating connections between Peter Pan, Arthur Rackham, and Edmund Dulac. American favorites are also presented: how Howard Pyle created a school of American illustration that produced N.C. Wyeth, while W. W. Denslow offered a unique American fairytale in his illustrations for 'The Wizard of Oz'. The lively text examines the context in which these phenomena took place, including the growth of the publishing industry, the changing attitudes toward children during the Victorian era, and the subsequent invention of the the children's picture book." Light fading to top edge of boards and spine. Dust jacket has very light edge wrinkling, very light rubbing.
