Randolph Caldecott was one of the most famous British illustrators. He changed the world of illustrated children's books in the Victorian era. In 1877, he was asked by Edmund Evans, the color printer and gifted engraver, to illustrate two children's books. These books were extremely successful and he continued producing two books every Christmas until he died. Caldecott chose all the stories and rhymes he illustrated and occasionally wrote and added to the stories himself. His adorable style and humour can still be enjoyed by young and old alike. This book, 'R. Caldecott's Picture Book No. 2', is a collection of the stories he published in 1880-1881. Many of the earliest children's books are now extremely rare and unbelievably expensive.
