First edition - fully illustrated, from the covers to all internal pages: bright colours and evocative drawings.
Illustrated by Walter Crane and Edmund Evans.
Walter Crane (August 15, 1845 - March 14, 1915). He is considered one of the pioneers of Art Nouveau.
He was one of the most influential children's book creators of his generation. Crane's illustrations are among the most detailed and colorful. Intended for children of all ages, they are characterized by many nursery rhymes and pedagogical stories.
After an apprenticeship at the studio of William Linton, he was influenced by the pictorial current of the Pre-Raphaelites, and was later a collaborator and disciple of William Morris in the Arts and Crafts Movement, active in socialist politics at the time.
