Walter Crane
(1845–1915) was a well-known and popular English artist and book illustrator. He is considered to be the most prolific and influential children’s book creators of his generation and, along with Randolph Caldecott and Kate Greenaway (see our other collections), one of the strongest contributors to the child's nursery motif that the genre of English children's illustrated literature would exhibit in its developmental stages in the latter 19th century.  His work featured some of the more colourful and detailed beginnings of the child-in-the-garden motifs that would characterize many nursery rhymes and children's stories for decades to come. He was part of the Arts and Crafts movement and produced an array of paintings, illustrations, children's books, ceramic tiles and other decorative arts.

 Note to buyers. Although the underlying book material is now in the public domain due to their age,  much additional editing, cropping and deleting of erroneous or damaged material has also been carried out personally, making this book set a unique and a much improved offering. It is provided here at a particularly low cost, mainly to cover materials plus various associated overheads & fees.

 It is now presented in a convenient Adobe Reader form (.pdf files) suitable for all computer systems. This allows for all the really essential illustrations and photos to be shown as opposed to the text only versions often made available. The Adobe reader itself is completely free to download from the Adobe web site, although it usually comes pre-installed.

Overall, a great collection of rare book scans at a
very low price. Go ahead and simply Treat Yourself!


* Please note that a number of the old books scanned will naturally show signs of age, such as an occasional watermark or browning/fading.

Although readable with only minor adjustments to the options already provided with the software they may not be in as pristine a condition as can be expected from newer volumes.

Allowances should be made accordingly.
