Randolph Caldecott 1846-1886 was a prolific illustrator and the Caldecott Medal was later to be awarded to illustrators with exceptional talent, there are many examples of his work in the Collection, here are of a few of the better known ones. These pictures come from 1879.128. but they are also used many times in various different publications.

During the next few months we will be adding many more pictures from the 19th Century Toy Books Series of publications by Frederick Warne and George Routledge with pictures from illustrators such as Harrison Weir and Walter Crane
