About This Item

London: George Routledge, 1890. First edition. GREENAWAY, Kate. First edition, second issue, retaining three full-page illustrations absent from future editions. Profusely illustrated in colour, this is Greenaway's first work with Edmund Evans, the printer famous for his mastery of the wood block print. The colour printing process used in these early books was quite innovative, involving photographing Greenaway's original watercolours onto specially prepared wooden blocks, one for each of the colours used. Large octavo, original illustrated papered boards, rebacked, faint occasional spotting, a very good copy of the first edition in fresh condition.
